John,

Not very sure if I understand your problem but, at least as I see it, it is
not so much that the characters are different, but the fact that there are
some additional characters. IIRC, the letter N with a tilde on top (Ñ) uses
the same position as the "#" character. Also, we use accented vowels (á, é,
í, ó, ú) but, at least on my country, these tend to be ignored if the text
is in uppercase (they are replaced by their standard, non-diacritical
version).

Also, we have an opening question mark (¿) and an opening exclamation mark
(¡).

HTH,

Instead of using an overlay for the back side of a form, I thought I could
just put the wording on the form. I can't see a problem doing that with
English. However, the form also >might< need to be printed in Spanish,
instead of English. There are a few characters that are different. I don't
know the names for the various modifications to letters, except for tilde.

What is involved with generating a string of characters that have the
various modifications?

Wish I could phrase the question better.
