This question already has an answer here:

So, in case you haven't noticed, not many ASCII keyboards have the German umlaut as a key. This doesn't tend to be too much of a problem, but whenever typing something like 绿色, I can never seem to find the character for 绿. Any tips?

Most Chinese pinyin IME use v in replace of ü, as v is not used in pinyin alphabet. You have got your answer in your comment.


You type "lv4se4" into a HanYu Pinyin IME to generate the ideographs for "lǜsè". If you type both syllables together, the relevant characters should be automatically selected by your IME.
