I am having trouble typing French accents using Pages, specifically, I cannot type an "a" with an accent grave. I have reviewed the Apple Community support page at but the directions it gives do not work (i.e., to hold down the option key while pressing the apostrophe key, followed by the "a" key. Can anyone provide any guidance?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
