I think what he means is how to type characters that have symbols above them, like ñ or å. You do this like so: Suppose you needed to type an accent over a letter, you would use the option key to enact the correct symbol, then type the letter. Example: Hernando. Option key, then press the n key = ñ. Result: Herñando.

There is nothing you can do on a 'pc' style keyboard that you cannot do on a mac keyboard. Apple have replaced the CTRL (control) key with there own, CMD (command, its symbol: ⌘) it has the same uses and shortcuts as the control key, Cut Copy and Paste, that sort of thing plus more.
Things like 'print screen' key have been replaced with combinations (Command (⌘) + Shift + Number 3)
you soon get used to the easy way of life.

Actually I found the place where it tells you that that kind of square root thing, like the one in the 'paste and match style' means control or command or one of those. I hadn't seen that anywhere. Sorry to be duh...dull.
Got it. thanks for you patience. Aidan
