- Subject: rxvt under X11 does not process dead accents.
This comment is about the behavior of rxvt under X11, so
I am not sure if this is the proper mailing list (as
rxvt is distributed with cygwin, I assume it's OK). Under
Windows, rxvt-2.7.2-10 properly handles the dead-accents,
and that is its big advantage over the cygwin-term. But under
X11 it fails to process the dead accents as defined by
the .Xmodmap file. For example, in the keyboard I am using,
"^a" should yield "â" but X11-rxvt yields "^a". Instead the
original xterm functions properly. If rxvt is to be useful
for the people with non-english keyboards this
problem has to be solved.
