Unhappy Spanish Punctuation

How do I get the punctuation marks in Spanish (the upside down ? and !).

That depends on which application you are using.

In vim, add this to your .vimrc
:set digraph

Then, when writing a document, escape out of insert mode, and enter :digraph at the command prompt to see the letter/key combinations for various special characters, such as the upside down question mark. The keys are pressed: first letter key, backspace, second letter key.

In Writer, Insert - Special Character, and select the character from the dialogue box that pops up.
