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».

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.
