I wanted a scheme which was easy to memorize for French characters.

Take a couple of minutes to study the pattern below, and its "logical" ordering alphabetically. Once understood, I hope it will serve you a lifetime of writing «les belles lettres».

" FRENCH Mapping scheme in alphabetic order
" where _ denotes primary letter
"
"       à _â  ä
"         _ç
"       è _ê  ë  é
"         _î  ï
"         _ô  ö
"       ù _û  ü
"
" For capital letters, use the ~ or U operator.

Note: French usage does require putting accent on capital letters. However, when typing machines arrived, due to their technical limitations, we started to see less and less accents on capital letters.
