No they're not, they should have tails and not acute accents. Doh! Kept thinking something didn't look right......
how do type á or é on your keybord,
Pressed Alt right, and then the appropriate letter.
No need to set it as default
The Polish language package is now installed. When you click on it, 3 choices come up. Set as default, options and remove. If you click on options, you get add a keyboard, so I've added it. The result is áéÁÉ and nothing else.
at the top of my Windows screen I have now a little button saying "PL Polski (Polska)" -
I don't have this or anything else I can see which looks relevant.
Anyway, I'm done with it now, I can't be arsed to p1ss about with it anymore!
I really cannot understand why the diacritics were removed in the first place. Will be a nightmare posting in the language forum without them :-(
