Hello Charles!

Adam prepared a document for you (thank you, Adam!), with screen  
captures, showing how to change your keyboard from typing English  
alphabetic characters, to typing Portuguese characters...in Windows  
XP. You can also do this on other versions of Windows, including  
Windows 98 and later...

How to Change your Keyboard to Other Languages in Windows XP

Your physical keyboard will all of a sudden type in the way they type  
in other countries....it is wonderful software that is built into the  
operating system of your computer...most people do not realize that  
you can change from typing Portuguese to Italian to Chinese etc, on  
the fly...by following the instructions above...

And as Stuart mentioned, it is also possible on the Mac and other  

So no need to paste words from other documents...just change your  
keyboard to another language...

Val ;-)
