With the new Finnish keyboard layout you'd enter the macron using a dead
letter key followed by e. A similar method is used for all Latin letters
with diacritics in MES-2 (collection 284 in ISO/IEC 10646) that are in
modern use. (Those pre-composed letters that are basic letters in Finnish,
å, ä, and ö, all sorted after z, have also their established keys.) This way
you don't have to remember the code positions for the pre-composed letters
or have access to a suitable table (but you need to locate the added
diacritics on the keyboard, ideally assisted by engravings).
We believe that this approach would be useful in many multilingual
environments (specifically in the European Union), and this will be one of
the inputs to the CEN Workshop on Functional Multilingual Extensions to
European Keyboard Layouts (WS/MEEK).

I feel like an idiot, but I cannot figure out how to create a small
letter e with macron.
I've seen different codes: 112, 113 and 114. I could figure out which
one will give me what I want, if I could end up with anything on the screen.
I've read instructions that tell me to hold down Control-Shift and
enter 112, 113 or 114. Nothing happens.
Obviously, I've missed something. HELP!
