The keymap is "boottime.kmap.gz", slightly changed.
I use 8 bit mode (xlate).
Lines with (6) diacritcs:
keycode 27 = apostrophe question dead_tilde Control_bracketright
alt keycode 27 = Meta_bracketright
keycode 40 = dead_acute dead_acute dead_circumflex
control keycode 40 = Control_g
alt keycode 40 = Meta_apostrophe
keycode 41 = degree dead_diaeresis bar nul
alt keycode 41 = Meta_grave
keycode 43 = plus asterisk dead_grave Control_backslash
alt keycode 43 = Meta_backslash
keycode 51 = comma semicolon dead_cedilla
alt keycode 51 = Meta_comma
Using Unicode makes no difference.
