I'm not sure if the following problem exists also in the current beta version
of the xemacs, but it exists at least in the version 21.4 (patch 8).
Bug (problem) description:
XEmacs 21.4 (patch 8)
SuSE Linux 8.1 with KDE 3.x
When I select a string with german (Umlaute) characters (äöüÄÖÜß)
with the mouse in a xterm (or konqueror, mozilla, ...) and paste it
in the XEmacs, I'll get a string, which looks like ^[...iso8859-15^Bäöü,
which is very annoying.
I've written a workaround (look at the attached file)
to fix it. I know it's not the real fix for this problem, but it works for
me. Feel free, to put it in your distribution, if no one has fixed the real
problem in the next XEmacs version.
With best regards,
PS: iso8859-15 is a new version of iso8859-1. I think most people in
europe use or will use these fonts at least caused by the euro
sign in these fonts.
PPS: It works in the GNU Emacs too.
