Nifty typing aid for Latin script characters

There is a free online editor for typing ‘special’ characters in Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, IPA (English), Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish. I am referring to the characters that are beyond the standard ascii set, and in some programs are hard to find the insert keystroke for. The nice thing about this is you don’t need to change any settings on your own computer. Just go to the TypeIt website, select the language, the character, and then copy and paste it into your program. Thank you to Tomasz P. Szynalski who created the site!
