General Keying Standards
Discussion Page

Important Note:


UPDATE:  The International Characters in the keying tool now support the kropka ( Ż )  Please only use the keying tool to enter this character.
Polish has a special diacritic that is not currently in the International Characters dialog of the Keying Tool. This is being remedied but in the meantime should you find a record that contains a kropka (ż), you will need to copy and paste it from this page into the keying tool. 

This project uses diacritics 

If you are using Windows XP there are some diacritics that may not be displayed correctly. This occasionally happens in newer browsers and operating systems as well. You may see a box inserted as a letter. For example: Mie□dzyrzecz instead of Międzyrzecz

When you key letters with diacritics, it is best to use the international character set provided or the numeric shortcut shown in the keying tool. (Note: Not all diacritics will have a shortcut displayed.) Do not use other keyboard shortcuts as a work around. For arbitrators and reviewers who are using Windows XP operating systems, if you see the □ displayed, you will need to key the diacritic using the international characters symbols provided in the tool to ensure the proper diacritic is being entered. 

More info on international characters and diacritics

ALSO: Setting up an alternate keyboard layout may GREATLY improve the speed of data entry
