If using the EBCDIC Code Page 37, then use the hex-input key immediately followed by the digit six followed by another digit six; IIRC, the à character should appear directly, where the cursor is positioned. If using an emulator, typically one would choose to map a key sequence to that character if there is not already a key-sequence defined, to ease entry of that character.
