    Ive tried using the alt key followed by 3 digit numbers to type
    foreign characters while im writing, but it doesn't seem to work at
    all, even using 4 digit codes too. Ive put my num lock on and it still
    wont work. I don't have a seperate number key pad to the right, so I
    worry if thats why, but surely if your laptop doesn't have a seperate
    number keypad, shouldn't you be able to do it with the numbers at the
    top of the keypad?

    On desktops, the alt+nnn only works with the number pad.

    On laptops, there's a pseudo number pad that shares keys with the
    right hand side letters. They can be accessed by pressing the fn key.
    The numbers are commonly colored blue.

    Try alt+fn+nnn, and see if you get results.
