        I've been searching the web for information about how to type accented
characters (French) using a US 104-key keyboard. I understand that a compose
key is involved, but everything I've found so far has involved adding
character<=>key mappings using xmodmap, whereas it appears that one does not
need to do that; but there seems to be an assumption that just saying "press
the compose key and..." magic happens.
        Can anyone point me to a tutorial or something that explains the various
combinations, etc.?
