You're right, I should have mentioned that. I admit to only having learned about that recently, but it didn't sound quite right to me. You really like it better? As I understand it, the US International keymap makes any character that might be used as a deadkey always act as a deadkey, right? Because that sounds a little annoying for programming. In a Ruby program, even a French or Spanish one, probably most of the ` and ~ characters are going to be syntax, not diacritics. (But like I said, I haven't gotten to try it, so I might have gotten the wrong impression.)



I found it annoying enough that I now use US International without deadkeys. And definitely "Alt gr-o" is a lot easier than the "Option-e o" that I'm forced to use on the school's Macs.
