Here's one..When someone has special characters in their name, how do you type them in?Let's say you want to send a message to someone whose name starts with an A with an accent over it, and you don't have any other tricks up your sleeve (like having them in your friends list, or having had them recently say something in a public channel so you can just respond). How do you /w them?

Here is a website that lists the most common alternate letter codeshttp://tlt.its.psu.edu/suggestions/international/accents/codealt.html

Also, you can right-click their name in the chat window, or targetting portrait, and select 'whisper'.

...of course, if you use a Mac, most diacritics can be typed through some combination of Option and/or Shift + some letter. It's actually pretty easy. Here's a list:http://altec.colorado.edu/howto/diacritics_macs_final.shtml

Or if you Shift-Click on their name while you have a text box open, it'll copy it there.

If you can't find the symbol in those lists, Windows' Character Map (usually in Accessories>System Tools) will let you select & copy the special character(s) so you can paste them into the chat box in WoW.

You can click on their name in the chat window to send them a whisper. Shift+click will do a /who on them. Right-clicking will bring up a menu with options like /invite and /ignore.

If you're trying to whisper someone, say an enchanter in /2, you can simply left-click their name to automatically pop up a /w [name] in your chat box. :D
