This letter isn't contained in Symbols. How do I type an "n" with tilde over
it. Many Spanish names and words are written in that style.

You've missed it; the character is ASCII 241 or Unicode 0F1 and is present
in most fonts. In the Insert > Symbol dialog, with "(normal text)" selected
in the font box and "ASCII (decimal)" selected in the dropdown at the bottom
right, you'll find the character 15 characters from the end of the list.

The default shortcut for it is to press and release Ctrl and the tilde key
together, then press the n key.

Or you can hold the Alt key while you type 0241 on the number pad (with
NumLock turned on).

Or (in Word 2003 or later) you can type F1 in the document and press Alt+X.

I misspoke slightly -- the Alt+X method is available in Word 2002 and later.

Also, when you press Ctrl and tilde, that actually means Ctrl and Shift and
tilde (which is a shifted character).
