I'm using the chromebook from acer, the C7, which I bought here in Holland. Ever since I'm on Web Applications or on Super User with the chromebook, I'm having trouble writing short cuts like:I'm or I've.

On my chromebook they appear like this: Iḿ or Iǘe.

Does anyone know which keyboard I need to select in order for me the write more efficiently those short cuts?
