I read here that "The standard U.S. layout has a few dead key stated under ⌥". Does that mean that pressing Alt+that key would make that key act as a dead one?
I am looking for a layout that uses as dead keys the symbols that look like accents before the letters that one wants accented, like the "US-International" in Win7 and "English-US, with dead keys" in Ubuntu-Linux. In these layouts, the keys for ` , ' , ^ , " are dead. After them, Space key brings the character as such, while something like e will bring è, é, ê, ë respectively.
Are there such keyboard layouts for Mac? (I am very new to the system.)
(I am not looking for answers like "use this app and create your own layouts".)
