Fadas

On other forums and on-line dictionaries that deal with Irish Gaelic you have the possibility of keying in letters with fadas on them (both capitals and lower case) when you wish to make a contribution. So it would be nice to have a similar facility here and not only for Irish but for the other language forums that are here, such as Italian - I have a French AZERTY keyboard, so for that language it's not a problem for me but I'm sure it could be for others.

Control Panel > Language Options > English (Ireland)

Hold down the Alt Gr key while entering the required vowel.

It's something you need to do on your own computer's settings, and not as part of the site.

Ctrl/ALT/4 = € on most keyboard layouts.

My European keyboard also produces the "€" symbol with AltGr/4.
