So the requirement is: When I'm using the arabic input method, and I type a digit, I want Emacs to insert the Hindi character for that digit. To do this, we can adapt your linked approach to extend an input-method like so: (eval-after-load "quail/arabic" '(let ((quail-current-package (assoc "arabic" quail-package-alist))) (quail-define-rules ((...

It's been almost 10 years since the last time I needed to edit a LaTeX document in Russian, but I can relate. :-) According to the Emacs Lisp Manual every input method should disable key translation and conversion if overriding-local-map is set. We should be able to rely on this to disable quail conditionally. In Emacs 24.4 and later (using the new ...

Unfortunately using quail to convert a character from beyond the Basic Latin and Latin-1 Supplement blocks (i.e. anything with a codepoint above 255) is not possible. Firstly, the quail-translation-keymap, quail-simple-translation-keymap and quail-conversion-keymap (which are used depending on precisely which quail-based input method you use) are assigned ...

Using quail-define-rules is overkill (note the rules, plural, in the function name) — an alternative is quail-defrule (one rule...) Directly from my scratch buffer (quail-defrule "á" ["something"]) ["something"] — note that it's not (quail-defrule "á" "something"), to do what you want the string must be an element of a vector (ref. C-h f quail-defrule RET)...

You can try something like the following: (defvar my-quail-activate-hook-done nil) (defun my-quail-activate-hook () (unless (member (quail-name) my-quail-activate-hook-done) (push (quail-name) my-quail-activate-hook-done) (when (member (quail-name) '("purescript-unicode")) ;; Remove the "->" binding. (setf (alist-get ?> (cdr (...

The d̤ is the only character in there which isn't pre-composed; it's a normal LATIN SMALL LETTER D followed by a COMBINING DIAERESIS BELOW. That makes it a syntax error because a character literal can only be a single character. quail-define-rules will also accept strings so use "d̤" instead.
