You change your current character encoding using one of:
> change encoding ascii > change encoding latin-1 > change encoding utf-8If your terminal doesn't show accented characters correctly in either Latin-1 or UTF-8 modes, use
change encoding ascii. In this mode, MUME changes accented characters into their unaccented 7 bit version (or the closest match available; e.g., the copyright sign gets replaced by 'C').
change encoding latin-1,
MUME will send you accented
On modern Unix installations, the default is to use the UTF-8 character
encoding. Note, however, that while UTF-8 can encode any Unicode character,
MUME will only accept those that
exist in Latin-1. See
latin-1 for a list of the allowed characters.
If your keyboard lacks the keys to type accented letters, there are various
ways to do this. If you are running Windows, you can use an
"International" character set which lets you type
an accented A.
If your computer is running some Unix variant, you can configure your keyboard to have a Compose key. On most modern Linux installations you can do this in the normal keyboard configuration dialogs.
For older installations, you can change your
xmodmap file to
reprogram your keyboard to give
you a Compose key (a.k.a.
Multi_key). This may be slightly
confusing, but there are tools available that make this somewhat easier (e.g.,
xkeycaps which can be found at
