Tip: Heres how to do it another way.
In Windows, click on start, then programs, then accessories, then character map.  Using the same font type, click on the vowel with the accent and click select, Do this for all letters you will need and then click copy.    You will then have then have á, é, í, ó, ü, ñ, on your clipboard.  Then whenever you need a special character, click edit and paste and ALL the special characters appear, delete the ones you do not need.

Tip: More good advice
Regarding spanish accents I prefer to do it a different way.  You do not have to type so many numbers along with the <alt>, or copy and paste.  Go to Start>Settings>Control Panel>Keyboard>click on the Language Tab> choose United States -International>click OK, then click on ADD.  On same tab where it says Switch Languages, choose Left Alt +shift> click on  Apply, then click on   OK.  That is all you have to do.   When typing on you keyboard, you use only the <Alt> on the right side. (will not work with the Alt on the left side.  Push the right Alt and a, e, i, o,  or   u  (both at the same time)  to  get (á, é, í, ó,ú)  To get: ü (Alt + y),  ñ (Alt+n),  ç (Alt + <),  ¡ (Alt + 1), ¿ (Alt +?).   Experiment with Alt and any of the other letters and numbers on the keyboard, you get    ²   ³      ¼ ½  ¾  æ  ©   µ    ß    ð   ø   ö  þ  ®   å  ä..   It is  as easy as typing any other letters.  One warning though, do not use it on Word 95, or 97.  It will not work.  I use it only on my e-mails or with  Excel.
