Type in accented letters, international characters or symbols into Firefox or Thunderbird, either simply by using a context menu (there being support for many languages), or quickly by keyboard macro (you can even define your own). For example, the three keystrokes to compose e-circumflex are: e ^ INSERT.The extension supports the CEN Multilingual European Subset, and was developed for European Language Day.The extension is easy to configure, but is language neutral, so here are some tips on set up. First, after installing, you can context click any internet form and follow the abcTajpu menu to insert any (MES) character. After using a while you might like to add language specific menus - from tools.abcTajpu.abcTajpu tick the checkboxes for the languages you wish to appear in context menus, then click :-) for ok or X to cancel. Beyond that, power users can open tools.abcTajpu.abcTajpu, and choose the radiobox for the hot key desired and suitable for your system (noting that this takes effect on newly opened windows). With a hot key setup (say you chose [< which means the insert key), you don't need to use the context menu, you can just type in an internet form for example a`INSERT to get a a-grave. (Not all hot keys will work with all systems.) Finally, for the really keen, macros can also be defined in tools.abcTajpu.abcTajpu, as a means to show the syntax by default a macro for Esperanto speakers is suggested, but a German speaker might choose "ss=%u00df|A[Ee]=%u00c4|ae=%u00e4|O[Ee]=%u00d6|oe=%u00f6|U[Ee]=%u00dc|ue=%u00fc" - now type (three keystrokes) AeINSERT for A umlaut.

Supported Firefox versions: Firefox 1.5 - 2.0.0.* ALL Thunderbird 1.0 - 3.0a1 ALL

Notes / Comments: Version abcTajpu 1.3.4 is now available, with improved default key mappings, and with a new alt-F1 feature.
