can anybody help me with this one:
How do I enter special character into an emacs buffer?
- First case: the EURO symbol '€' is on my keyboard and can be accessed via "Ctrl - Alt E"
  (it appears in notepad not in emacs).

See the documentation [C-h v] for w32-recognize-altgr

- Second case: I would like to enter the spanish 'ñ' from my german keyboard via "Alt 164" (on the numeric keypad).

How can I enter such "special" characters into an emacs buffer?
M-x set-variable <enter> read-quoted-char-radix <enter> 10 <enter>

C-q 241 <enter>

I'm not sure where the 164 comes from, ñ is at character code 241 in Latin-1, Windows-1252 and Unicode encodings.
