Long ago NEWS.19 got this delightful entry:|
** Dead-key and composite character processing is done in the standard
X11R6 manner (through the default "input method" using the
/usr/lib/X11/locale/*/Compose databases of key combinations). I.e. if
it works in xterm, it should also work in emacs now.
This has long since stopped working. I found a workaround of (require 'iso-transl), which handles a few cases but not even a western European dead-cedilla is handled. Even if I do (require 'ogonek), dead-ogonek is not handled. All other programs still do this fine, why did Emacs forget about this?
Btw. this is Ubuntu 9.10 and the file name is /usr/share/X11/locale/*/Compose but I guess configure, which I ran from CVS should have detected that.
