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

"         _î  ï
"         _ô  ö
"       ù _û  ü
" For capital letters, use the ~ or U operator.
" Note:  French usage does not require putting accents
" on capital letters, with the exception of Ç, unless
" you're typing all caps, e.g., Ecoutez ! vs. ÉCOUTEZ !
