I use the US International Keyboard with dead keys. 
áéíóúñ, etc.
You touch the ' key and then the a to get á. 
If you want just an apostrophe, press ' key and then space. 
I guess that's why they're called dead keys. 

For the ñ, press the ~ key and then the n key.  

Now, the inverted ! works in OpenOffice.org but not in Kmail 1.5 for 
some reason.  Probably sometime is not configured correctly?
