Win2k/XP.
The *US-International* English keyboard input locale
provides means to enter common digraph
combinations. For instance, type ' (back tick)
followed by e to enter č (grave accented e).
Console mishandles such key combinations, for the
above example it enters two back ticks then a
regular e character.
To reproduce: from the system/regional
options/input locales control panel applet add "input
language=US-English" with "Keyboard
layout-IME=United States-International" and switch
to that. Input layout MUST be "United
States-International". Then open a command line
box and experiment with digraphs. Use the following
combinations:
back tick + vowel = grave accented vowel
quote + vowel = acute accented vowel
double quote + vowel = umlaut vowel
tilde + n = ń
there are a few other combinations.
When you need to enter a regular back
tick/quote/double quote/tilde just type it in once
then press the space key.
Now switch to console.exe and see that when you
enter back tick/quote/double quote/tilde it
immediately enters that key twice instead of waiting
for the second (vowel / n) key to be typed in.

    Please get the latest dev. version and read 'International
    characters' chapter in the README file, the last paragraph...
    The problem is that when you switch keyboard layout in
    Console, it doesn't get switched in the real Win console
    (it's a different process) Unhide the Win console, and
    switch keyboard there (or make US-intl layout the default
    keyboard layout, so all new processes will use that layout)

    No, this doesn't fix the problem at all.
    I did have English US-International as my default input
    locale. When I unhide win console, digraphs work
    perfectly. They don't work with console.exe. I'm on win2k
    sp4 and use an English keyboard. The US-International
    input locale is exactly like the US-English locale, except
    that it let's you keyin common digraphs as previously
    explained.

    Try the 336 build. It should work now...
