Copy and paste does the trick if you know where to find one to copy and paste. ;-D

That's exactly what I did. B-) I was doing a little research before I posted and saw that Yahoo had his name with the accent over it, so I just went with it.

I've never tried using the Windows Key Codes on this site, but I'm sure that would work too.

You can always use Character Map, ya know? Every version of Windows comes preloaded with a character map program which should give the accented letters for each font. ;-)

I picked him up before the year started in my yahoo league. I read he struck out 13 in a AAA game, and figured I'd go for it. Kept him for the first half. Traded him and mark reynolds for M-Cab wen he was ice cold. It worked out good.

Nice trade CM.
I can't believe everything about Volquez on this thread is generally negative. The biggest complaint seems to be that he'll be over-rated in next year's drafts.
The real issue is how he will do next year. I think he still has nice upside.
I won't reach for him, but I see him as a decent No. 2 or 3 pitcher on a fantasy staff.

I think that's the issue, though. Knowledgeable owners won't reach for him, but a lot of people will (hoping for early 08 numbers), making him overrated. There's no chance he'll be around as a #3 pitcher in any league, but there is a chance he'll perform like one.
