Do you have Spanish language and keyboard support in Windows (I assume
you're using Windows)? If you don't then you need to install it, and
then selecting the Spanish keyboard should then enable accented

If you want spell checking you can add the languages you want via the
internationalisation options in the Pidgin installation program.
