Hm... /etc/default/locale has the following content
LANG="en_US.UTF-8"

So I guess that's what I have.

Actually I have the norwegian characters on my keyboard.  What I miss
most, are the ones I didn't have on my keyboard that the latin mode
provided (the a and o umlaut, the degree sign etc.).

I had a look at the swedish-postfix method, but the character
combinations used would be too intrusive, I think.

The "o to get an umlaut, and the // to get a degree sign, are
"programmed" into my fingers, and I find myself typing them, and being
disappointed when the expected thing doesn't happen...:-)
