I had this same problem...  I just put a little popup menu next to the field
(you could also put it in the menubar) that displays the special characters:

Á
À
á
à
-
É
È
é
è
-
Í
Ì
í
ì
-
Ó
Ò
ó
ò
-
Ú
Ù
ú
ù
-
Ñ
Ñ

Then I use this script in the button:

on menuPick theItem
  put the id of the selectedField into tFieldID
  put word 4 of the selectedChunk into tChunk
  put theItem after char tChunk of field id tFieldID
end menuPick


Hope this helps...

Dan
