The ' " key [far right in third row from the top and yellow-shaded above] is a "dead key", i.e., it only works in combination with the next key you hit:
  • hit the space bar and an apostrophe appears [quotation mark if you had used the shift on the dead key]. 

  • hit a vowel and you get the diacritical version of that vowel: ó é ú í ü ï ÿ

 * If this isn't already your default keyboard in Windows 98, go to: Settings, Control Panel, Keyboard, Language, Properties, Keyboard Layout and choose "United States-International". [XP has slightly different terminolgy; click here.]
