+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: RichTextBox and compose key.
+It is not possible to enter international characters using the compose key
+to enter them.
+To enter international characters, you must setup your "AltGr" (The Alt key
+on the right) key to be "Compose".  You can do that with this command:
+xmodmap -e "remove mod1 = Alt_R" -e "keysym Alt_R = Multi_key"
+Once this is done, you can enter accented leters, for example: ó.
+This is done by pressing:
+1. RightAltKey
+2. the ' key (apostrophe).
+3. the letter o.
+That produces ó in Firefox for example.
+If this is attempted on the RichTextEdit it insert "'o" instead.
