This is a post scriptum to my own last post in this thread:

- Nothing to add to the note about typing brèves and macrons on the 
Mac, easy enough as is.

- On the WINDOWS front, however, the best and most flexible script to 
set up the macros that YOU feel most comfortable about is the following 
program: "AutoHotkey"--a free, open-source macro-creation script for 
all newer Windows versions. The script I mentioned my last post is 
actually made using "AutoHotkey" 
(http://www.autohotkey.com/community/viewtopic.php?p=219956). After 
looking further into this, I see it makes more sense to use the 
"AutoHotkey" instead of trying to adjust AX. (Sorry about that.)

Script Home page and download page:
Wikipedia entry:

The script allows very easily to create hotkeys (key combination), the 
ones you prefer!
See the "By the way" example ==> ::btw::by the way

Another alternative is to just create your own keyboard driver for 
Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7 yourself, using the Microsoft 
Keyboard Layout Creator (MSKLC). Instead of using e.g. "US 
International" or "French" you would create your own keyboard driver 
based on whatever standard driver works best for you, and then just 
change certain key assignments how you need them; create your own 
driver, call it "US Breves," "French-Breves" or whatever you want.
