You can include in you L^{A}TEX document a wide range of symbols that do not
appear on you your keyboard. For a start, you can add an accent to any letter:

`o`\`{o}`

õ`\~{o}`

o`\v{o}`

o`\c{o}`

'o`\'{o}`

=o`\={o}`

o`\H{o}`

o`\d{o}`

ô`\^{o}`

o`\.{o}`

oo`\t{oo}`

o`\b{o}`

ö`\"{o}`

o`\u{o}`

A number of other symbols are available, and can be used by including the following commands:

There is also a

`\dag`

§`\S`

©`\copyright`

`\ddag`

¶`\P`

£`\pounds`

`\oe`

`\OE`

æ`\AE`

Æ`\AE`

å`\aa`

Å`\AA`

ø`\o`

Ø`\O`

`\l`

`\E`

ß`\ss`

`?``

`!``

...`\ldots`

L^{A}TEX`\LaTeX`

`\today`

command that prints the current date. When you
use these commands remember that L`\pounds 20`

' to get `£20'.
However, if you type ``LaTeX is wonderful`

' you will get `L`\LaTeX{} really is wonderful!`

Finally, L^{A}TEX `math' mode, normally used to layout mathematical
formulae, gives access to an even larger range of symbols, including the
upper and lower case greek mathematical alphabet, calligraphic letters,
mathematical operators and relations, arrows and a whole lot more. This
document has not mentioned math mode, and it isn't going to either, so you
will have to refer to the manual if you really need something that you
can't get otherwise.
