For those who are prefectionists the word Ménière's has accents as well as an apostrophe.
To accent, use the numeric keypad (not the numbers above the Qwerty pad) as follows:
hold down the Alt key and enter 130 on the numeric keypad, then release the Alt key to obtain an     é
             ditto                           138                                     ditto                                               è

The above instructions apply to PCs, and not Macs.

There are numerous characters possible using the above method. If interested I can give you a list of those which are more useful.
