"The new Latin9 nicknamed Latin0 aims to update Latin1 by replacing the
less needed symbols ¦¨´¸¼½¾ with forgotten French and Finnish letters
and placing the U+20AC Euro sign in the cell =A4 of the former
international currency sign ¤." (pardon the odd characters)
Latin1 == iso8859-1
So, in theory use iso8859-15, and then use the Compose key setup of:
iso8859-15/Compose:<Multi_key> <C> <equal> : "\244"
iso8859-15/Compose:<Multi_key> <equal> <C> : "\244"
iso8859-15/Compose:<Multi_key> <E> <equal> : "\244"
iso8859-15/Compose:<Multi_key> <e> <equal> : "\244"
I've not tried this yet, however.
The best one is where microsoft put their symbol in
'iso-8859-1'-cp1252-winlatin1, which is in 80, instead of a4 where
iso-8859-15 puts it. What does most codepages use? 80 or A4? Does
iso-8859-1 even have anything in 80? Is this going to lead to lots of
