TeX Codes for Accents

TeX codes may be used only in the name field. If you are unsure of the code, it is better to omit it.

Notes:

• For accents, a control character or control word is followed by the letter to be accented within braces {}. Substitute the example letter with the correct one, i.e., for ü, enter \"{u}.
• While there may be other acceptable TeX formats, the ones shown are preferred.
• Output is shown only when there is an HTML equivalent.
