anybody know how to put that accent grave or ague or whatever it is over the e?

You can memorize the alt-codes. Or you can do what I do when you really, really feel the need to use uncommon symbols, use the character map. Uh, assuming you use Windows, anyway, it's on the start menu under Accessories | System Tools | Character Map. You can find characters like é, double-click on them to put them in the text box, and use the "copy" button to put them into your clipboard. After that, it's just paste.

That's how I found the £ symbol for the Argument Sketch.

As a bonus, selecting a character show the alt-key code, if you want to use that in the future. é is ALT-0233, for example. You have to use the numeric keypad for those codes, the main keyboard numbers won't work.
