What does this have to do with XFree86 exactly?  I miss that part...
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2003-06-24 12:13:22 EDT
Reassigning to kbd, not an XFree86 problem.
Comment 3 Christian Tosta 2003-06-25 08:43:10 EDT
Ok. 
Comment 4 Christian Tosta 2003-08-30 02:02:07 EDT
According XFree86 XKB developers, problem can be the console font used.
Comment 5 Eido Inoue 2004-02-26 20:59:09 EST
our console font has space for only a limited amount of characters. we
have to compromise and choose the unicode font with the most amount of
coverage. the workaround is to change the console font in
/etc/sysconfig or to use a GUI if you need a wider font range than
what the text console can provide.
