Aaahh ;), you've should said that before. The whole problem with the
kernel is with the compose tables. If you have a native key for "ö" in
your keyboard you'll not have problems. I can type for example a 'n
with tilde' in my keyboard because is too is a native key, but for
accentuated characters, for utf-8 output is neccesary to apply the patch :-/
