Español, at least here in Zacatecas, Jalisco, Nayarit, Michoacán, Guerrero, Oaxaca, Colima, Tamaulipas, Nuevo León, Yucatán, Veracruz, México DF, and San Luis Potosí. I have never heard Castillano although in several books I have read published in Spain, that seems to be preferred on the penninsula.
The easiest way of all to enter accents on vowels, etc, is to use the International Keyboard available from all Windows operating systems since Windows 3. I have used that keyboard now for over 18 years. It leaves the keyboard exactly as we are used to and when you want an accent you hold down the right Alt key and hit the aeiou áéúóú¡¿ñ etc and when you want the ÁÉÍÓÚ you hold down the right Alt key and the shift key. The one thing necessary to remember is when you want the quote " or the ' keys you need to space after hitting them.
This works for Adobe, notepad, Wordpad, Word, for e mail, and for all other editions of word processors since it is a computer resident item not dependent on the word processing application.
I do a lot of writing in Spanish and I use Word 2000, which came free with my Windows 3? system. Later editions of Word require extra money which I don't want to spend.
If you don't know how to implement your International keyboard look in Help for that item.
Hasta luego. jerezano.
