I'm using Word for Mac and was wondering if there is an equivalent to the "Character Map" found in windows (for accent marks and other characters) available.

    Open Language & Text preferences, click on the *Input Sources* tab. Check the top box labeled, "Keyboard and Character Viewer." This should place a menubar item you can select to open each viewer. Character maps are available for all the various languages and fonts.

    for accent marks

    For the most common accent marks you can also use some simple alt/option keyboard shortcuts. A list is here:
