Quark diacritical marks

Anybody have a good list of Quark characters with diacritical marks that would include such specialized items as an o with a line over it and an r with a hacek (as in "Dvořak")?

Does this help? It doesn't have the hacek, you must know the keystroke since you just typed it for your post, right? It should be the same in Quark.

This is a great resource, but it only deals with HTML ampersand entities. Inquiring minds may want to know that ō is the o with a line over it, the o-macron, and ř is the code for an r-hacek. (And don't forget that Dvořák has an a-acute, too, which is á.)

Click on the PDF here called European Accented Characters

(some things aren't supported, so you might be out of luck. I think Quark Passport supports more special characters than regular--i can check monday at work if you want--email me.)

there's also PopChar, which is handy if you use foreign or weird characters often. It sits in the top corner of the menubar.
