Accessing additional characters?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know how to access the extra characters on the Apple IIe keyboard?  For example, the British pound symbol. I see it on the key, but haven't found a key combination that displays it on the monitor yet.

Ah yes, the switch. Interestingly, that's how the machine arrived to me. I had to switch that off straight away. 

 

I was hoping for a way to access them with a Control or Apple key combination so that they could be generated in a text file along with $ and other symbols from the set I'm using currently. I wonder if it's okay to flip the switch while the machine is on.

You can flip that switch allllll you like..... but it only changes the character generated on the screen, the ASCII values in whatever text you're working with are still the same.  There's no way I know of to generate both characters at once.
