Yes I am looking for the "¿" character.
I don't want the Spanish characters to be on a "AltGr" combination because for the "É" Spanish character, it will overwrite my "€" character (done with "AltGr+E").
I never use the right shift key when I am typing on my keyboard, so I prefer to put all my Spanish characters with this key.
