Thanks for the information. I have in the mean time created already a
complete table based on a draft version from Richard Verhoeven
<river@win.tue.nl>. I'll append it below. It is already part of
the very latest xterm development version on


(patch #106 or newer), which now understands all keysyms in UTF-8 mode
(option -u8). Works lovely.

It would be quite important for further progress with Unicode under
Unix, that at least UTF-8 will soon be properly supported under the X11
sample implementation as a multi-byte character set. All the basic
mechanics is already there (for various east Asian encodings), but they
just have not been implemented for UTF-8. Do you know, whether SGI has
any interest in getting UTF-8 properly supported in the X11 sample
