Subject: X11 keysym to Unicode mapping

Has anyone done a machine-readable mapping table between the characters
in the X11 keyboard symbols list


and Unicode? I am about to prepare one and I just want to check
quickly whether this hasn't already been done before.

(BTW: Recent XFree86 xterm development versions now do support UTF-8;
only the keyboard support is still incomplete. For details, check
<http://www.clark.net/pub/dickey/xterm/xterm.html> and get patch #103
or higher compiled with "./configure --enable-wide-chars; make". Install
the 6x13 ISO 10646-1 BDF font from


Then try "xterm -u8" and "cat" the example files that come with the
fonts. Really cool! Since the UTF-8 support in Xlib seems to be still
incomplete, UTF-8 has to be hardwired into xterm at the moment and
cannot yet be handled via the Xlib multi-byte locale string functions.)
