hi list.

I very often use a lot of "special characters"
But I have some trouble getting them to work in kde.

I already switched my template to english with deadkeys.
this way I get most of the chracters I use without to much trouble, 

but I also very often use characters like the a,o,u,i,e with a - on top of it, 
and the same characters with a - on top of it and a ´ on top of that.

I have not found any way to add these characters in kde.
does anyone know any way to get them?

and if possible, does anyone know if it is possible to add them in the same 
way dead keys work?

something like:
pressing - and o,a,u,i,e would give you o,a,u,i,e with a - on top.
and pressing _ would give you o,a,u,i,e with both - and ´ on top.

that way I would have one layout with all the characters I ever use. :)
