«Composed» seems to be the key word.

i just got my CA_enhanced keyboard out of the basement and, in OOo, I can't 
produce èàç, which I can produce with the CA keyboard because, with this 
keyboard, those letters are not "composed", but produced with only one key.

Even more interesting is the case of the  ~ with the CA keyboard. Normally, if 
I press the (right) ALT + ~ , then n, I get ñ . If I press ALT + ~  twice, I 
get ~ But those characters do not appear in OOo in Knoppix becasue they are 

But, I can also get a ~ by pressing the (right) CTRL + ~ key and obtain a ~ in 
one stroke. (I don't have to press twice as with ALT.) In this case, the 
tilde appears in OOo because it is not composed.

So it is a problem with composed characters.

Maybe OOo has its own module for composing characters that has been left out? 
(Sorry if I'm completely out of whack. This is only a wild guess.) Are 
characters with tilde and diaeresis also composed in german?
