Keys for inserting Spanish and Portuguese accents

Please use the following ALT+ number combinations (using number keypad) for letters with Spanish and Portuguese accents:

Alt+160 á Alt+227 ã
Alt+130 é Alt+133 à
Alt+161 í Alt+131 â
Alt+164 ñ Alt+135 ç
Alt+162 ó Alt+136 ê
Alt+163 ú Alt+245 õ
Alt+129 ü Alt+147 ô
Alt+168 ¿    
Alt+173 ¡    

Alternatively you may simply copy and paste these characters into the search box.

Results are ordered by date of publication. If you would like to order the results by the percentage relevance to the query put a check in the 'order by relevance' box. Factors that play a part in determining the relevance value are:

  • Frequency of unique words matched.
  • Total number of times the matched word appears throughout the catalogue i.e. commonly occuring words such as 'Government' score lower relevance than specialised words such as 'Lula'. This is a statistical normalisation.
  • Relevance values calculated relative to other Articles in the search results. A high relevance indicates that the Article is probably more likely to help you than a lower ranked one.
  • Higher relevance is awarded when search alternatives (e.g. two phrases separated by 'OR') appear closer to each other than in other search matches.
