Select the menu item "Text->Encoding->ISOLatin1".  Then when editing
text, type the backslash key to get the character map.  You will find
all the various accented characters at the bottom.  ISOLatin1 covers,
among other things, all the major European language characters.  Since
I assume you're looking for Spanish, not Polish, this should cover your
needs (although I do have Polish encodings. . . ).

The ISOLatin1 character set also includes often-used characters such
as "?" for "micro", times (instead of "x"), divided-by, and copyright.
