C-q) I can enter ‘Option-something’ extended characters, but Emacs apparently understands them as ISO 8859-1. Meanwhile, MacOS has its own layout for these characters (changed with the input language or custom layouts), and there's a cheatsheet in the form of ‘Keyboard viewer.’
Is there any way to make Emacs use the same layout for
quoted-insert as native applications do?
I could conceivably edit a keymap by hand to reflect the system one, but 1) I don't see a mention of a special keymap for
quoted-insert, and 2) I'd prefer not to.
Apparently Emacs does receive native characters if
Option keys aren't set up as
Meta, however I don't have an abundance of modifier keys on my keyboard so I'd prefer to keep
Meta and use
quoted-insert when needed.
