    It should be written over the e, like this: cliché

    Some people who do not know how to create an acute accent with their computers put an apostrophe after the e instead.

    To create an acute accent, hold down the AltGr key (to the right of the space bar) and press 'e' or 'E'. :thumbsup:

    To create an acute accent on a QWERTY keyboard, hold down the AltGr key (to the right of the space bar) and press 'e' or 'E'. :thumbsup:
    Some of us have AZERTY keyboards where that manouevre give a € (euro symbol). But this nice forum helps with all the standard symbols in its "Go advanced" option.

    It took me a while to discover, but on an iPad (no idea if it works on Android etc) if you hold your finger on the e key, a window with all the various accents opens and you select the appropriate one. Other keys have similar "goodies" accessible in the same way.
