The "Spanish N," as it is frequently called, is an "N" with a small accent mark above it. The accent mark is called a tilde (and informally referred to as a "squiggly"). Since this character is not used in the English alphabet, most United States keyboards do not have a key specifically for it. You can use keyboard shortcuts, however, to quickly make a "Spanish N," whether upper case or lower case. The process is different between Windows-equipped PCs and those with the Mac operating system.
