    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 :-/
