Question mark key always comes up as a french letter e -

\015 Same problem - the question mark key comes up as a french letter e. I have checked to ensure default language etc is all set to English (Canada) - but darnd thing still comes up. Have not found a solution to it yet. Funnier yet - in Word - not a problem. With Outlook, using Word as my editor - still comes up. Driving me crazy.\015

Answers :

I use 2 different keyboard types too.
Have you tried pressing [Ctrl]+[Shift] to change the keyboard type you are in. Even if you choose a default language in a program all other program will still use the other keyboard type, hope this helps.
