I think this only works for the default character-style/font (i.e.
cptfont), but type <control>-q (the magic quote command) then type the
octal number for the accents.
The accent charaters start at #o300 and go up to about #o320 (I'm typing
this at home --so I'm not at my Lispm-- but I'm sure it's pretty close to
correct). You can do M-X Show Font in Zmacs to show which ones are
The accent character is inserted *before* the accented-character. This
works in Zmacs, Lisp-listeners, etc.
