Package: xlibs
Version: 4.2.1-11
Severity: wishlist

many of the compositions for latin characters (accents, umlaut, etc.)
has a "wrong" order of key strikes (Multi_Key + letter + accent, instead
of the "natural"? Multi_Key + accent + letter). Took me a long time to
find that out, i thought that the compositions were not working.

a suggestion is to include both order of the Multi_Key compositions. The
following simple perl script will do it (I used in my local

perl -ne 'if ( $_ =~ m/^<Multi_key>\s+<([^>]+)>\s+<([^>]+)>\s*:(.*)$/ &&
!("$1" eq "$2") ) { print "<Multi_key> <$2> <$1> : $3\n"; } print ;'

the same suggestion would apply to Compose files for other locales.

best regards,
