Hi Tokunaga-san

I see.  At the moment I'm revamping my Xmodmap to make it ISO-8859-15 and 
ISO-8859-16 compatible (just for fun) and would like to use the following 
dead keys.   
dead_circumflex: â
dead_diaeresis: ä
dead_acute: á
dead_grave: à
dead_cedilla: ç 
dead_tilde: ã
dead_breve: ă
dead_caron: č 
dead_macron: ā
dead_doubleacute: ő
dead_ogonek:  ą
dead_abovedot:  ė
dead_abovering: å
dead_belowdot:  t (no font...)

Using those dead keys and a dozen of special characters (ø ð đ ł ħ ŧ ß ŋ þ æ 
etc.) mapped to other keys, I'll be able to type Albanian, Basque, Bosnian, 
Breton, Catalan, Croatian, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Faroese, 
Finnish, French, Frisian, Galician, German, Greenlandic, Hungarian, 
Icelandic, Irish, Gaelic, Italian, Latin, Luxemburgish, Norwegian, Polish, 
Romanian, Portuguese, Rhaeto-Romanic, Romanian, Scottish Gaelic, Serbian, 
Slovenian, Spanish and Swedish, if I learn them. ;)

Looking forward to hearing about a solution to the problem.

Thanks again.
