How to make a Polish website on a US PC?

I have a PC with a US keyboard, and I am in the US. How can I efficiently write a website in Polish?

So far, I have been using UTF-8 and html character entities like ą (a cedilla), ć (c acute) etc. However this is very awkward. I imagined a method where I write aaa for a cedilla, ccc for c acute, and then I do a global search / replace, but this is awkward too. Not to mention it does not work when copying / pasting text. Any better ideas?

Intersting idea, but it does not work. Your converter does not have Polish characters. I tried to add them in your code, but it does not work.

Do you understand Polish? The easiest way is to change your keyboard layout to a Polish scheme, and enter the characters directly. It's pretty easy to toggle between two keyboard layouts. If you are not familiar with the Polish keyboard layout, then see if you can buy a cheap Polish-layout keyboard online. You can also buy overlay stickers pretty cheaply.

If you are dealing with only short snippets of text, then you can use the character picker in Windows accessories (similar features exist in Macs and Linux). However, this is very slow other than for short texts. You can also compose in Word and use Word's character selector.
