I have no problem with linux RH8.0/02-17 trunk build (1.3b) by typing accent characters when I set the system keyboard layout to German or French. Reporter: can you please provide more detail steps to reproduce? e.g. which input method on which web page, which character(s) you had problem?
I run RedHat Linux 8.0 in spanish language, and mozilla in english, on any textbox on any website, like this in bugzilla where I am typing rigth now, accents are not displayed.this is a sample: aaeeiioouu ( I can not type accents ) I used the .rpm files to upgrade from mozilla 1.3a. This is the first time I installed xft rpm. (does it matter?) I hope this could help you.
I don't know if the xft rpm matters or not, but seems there is problem when switch from Spanish keyboard to other language keyboard layout: I had no problem with switch between US, German and French, but when I switched to Spanish, and switch back to other languages keyboard layout, then I'll have the previous keyboard layout, I have to switch a few times in order to let it work correctly. But I still can input the accent characters if the keyboard layout represent properly.
I don't see this bug with a current trunk CVS build. Reporter: The Xft and Gtk2 builds are in the "experimental" dir. Please always specify if you are reporting bugs against those: They have bugs the default builds do not have. Reassiging.
