French latin-1 keyboard entry
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:09:31 EDT
1. The latin-1 keyboard entry specifies dead accents on the
top row of the keyboard (dead acute, dead grave, dead
circumflex). This is wrong. They should be normal ', normal
`, normal ^. Dead accents there prevents the normal typing
of a text and is not consistent with XFree.
2. When in caps-lock, accented letters placed directly on
the keyboard should be capitalized. For instance, pressing e
acute when in caps lock should give capital E acute.
This is the MS-DOS / Windows keyboard behaviour, which is
what people are used to.
3. I also advise to enable the compose key by default as one
of thew Windows key. It's handy to type, say, Spanish,
without remapping the keyboard.
