It's not that hard. I use an US keyboard and I've configured
Emacs to load iso-accents-mode and iso-accents-customize
portuguese for text-mode (which includes my e-mails).
Otherwise, I could enable the US International keyboard layout
in X (it is one of the predefined KBD drivers available), but
since it doesn't work the way I like (for instance, for typing
~/, I have to type the tilde, then a space and only then the
slash, rather than ~ followed by the slash) and Emacs does the
Right Thing, IMVHO, I only use accents when I'm using Emacs.
But I'd love to use accents in X in all programs, really. If
anybody could help here, I'd be grateful.
