The joy of Left Alt + Shift!

1t's the little things that make me happy! For ages I've been trying to work out the quickest way to get German characters (ä ö ü). In Word you can do Insert - Symbol etc, but that doesn't work on websites. And then yesterday I discovered that by doing (Left) ALT + SHIFT I can switch to my German keyboard through Windows, and then it's just a matter of pressing [ ; or ' to get the umlauted characters. Hurrah!
