I've learned that the Compose key function was broken in several/most
contexts in recent versions of Fedora Linux. The good news that it looks
a lot better with Fedora 14. Once I configured/specified the Compose key,
via System -> Preferences -> Keyboard -> Layouts -> Options, I found I
could compose Unicode chars in the Story Editor.

Yep, this work for me too, but it appears I must use 'e1' instead of 'E1'
in canvas view. ???
