Other special combinations:
(shift) - (=) i.e. shift and = together followed by the single letter d results in d.
(shift) - (=) i.e. shift and = together followed by the single letter n results in n.
(shift) - (=) i.e. shift and = together followed by the single letter t results in t.
(shift) - (=) and then (shift) - (s) = Capital
= (shift) - (u) i.e. press = on it's own then shift and u together = (Capital Czech U).

Go to the site at www.wordbook.cz and you'll find you can create correctly spelt Czech words using their special character selector. The search engine is no good for it but, you can copy the Czech text and paste it directly into the Czech search engine like Seznam for which the How to...guide was written. For those more generally interested in having a go at learning the language then try www.locallingo.com for basics and www.bohemica.com for basics and more advanced.
