This works in all of them.

In Windows XP: go to:
Control Panel
Regional and Language Options / Customize / Text Services and Input
Languages / Details / Add / Input Language: select Spanish
(International Sort) and confirm

You can have as many input languages as you like - you then get a little
button on the toolbar at the bottom of the page so you can switch easily
between EN (English) and ES (espagnol = Spanish).

Steve, could you please specify whether you are using Windows XP or
Vista or 7 or whether this works on all of them?

English (UK or US). The Spanish keyboard is QWERTY, so the same as
English, with two dead keys, one to the immediate right of P, the other
two keys to the right of L, with respectively (+Shift first)circumflex,
grave, diaraesis and accute accents. You simply type the dead key before
the vowel, and hey presto.

organizations (UN, EU) in order to be able to write French, Spanish,
etc. names easily. Your physical keyboad doesn't need to change, only
the keyboard installed in your word processing program.
