Can I point out please what seems to have been missed, but I think James 
has implied? Special character entry is really an OS issue, not an 
application problem, and is properly addressed at that level. Yes, 
clearly you can work round it using OOo's auto-correct or macro 
facilities - but then you have to get idiosyncratic workarounds for 
other applications too, and end up with a right old mess.

By way of example of a better possibility, a quick check on ubuntu shows 
a package called 'gok' which appears to be an on-screen keyboard of 
programmable layout. (Not that I've tried it!) No doubt there are 
windows equivalents.
