As of a couple of months ago, the documentation was massively replaced.
And failing that, I'd simply ask the questions first on the user mailing list,
and, if that fails, on the developers list.
For that matter, there's a couple of features in it that got added when I
raised them on the developers list.
Anyway, the documentation for accents is now there, and I think it uses dead
keys. Since I only write in english, I really haven't looked.
These opinions will not be those of ISU until it pays my retainer.
