I have a favor to ask though: Please stop referring to Schütz as "Schuetz." It's not 1965 anymore; this is well within our technological capacity.

Diacritics: Know 'em. Learn 'em. Use 'em.

Ahaha, your copy-editor gene coming to the fore! Don't I get credit for handling Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla correctly?

Well, I suppose that proves your point.

And I have fixed Schütz after remembering that it's one of the diacriticals for which I remember the key combo.

Your MGT mastery is fucking awesome. As, indeed, is your coinage of the TLA.

I must confess to CHEATING on her full name: the magic of copy & paste. But I swear to learn the key combinations for the diacriticals before her first recording is released.

Or you can do what I do: I've made a Word document with all the diacriticals I've come across (I get them either by copying and pasting from the source, or by inserting them from the symbols tool in Word). Then I copy and paste from that document when I need to. Learning the key combinations feels like too much trouble.

My equivalent is bookmarking a page with Macintosh key combinations for diacriticals. For one thing, I am Microsoft-free.
