You mean 0237 for í.   You might want to enable US/International
keyboard mode so you can type them even more easily.

But the problem isn't how you enter them.  The content of the page is
encoded in Latin-1, but the encoding is not indicated anywhere. So any
browsers that assume UTF-8 by default will see garbage instead of the
accented characters.  (Though most should be smart enough to
autodetect the encoding...)

You can fix that by adding a tag inside the <head> of the HTML:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
