      I don't know if it's a general Java problem or just Minecraft, but the U.S. International Keyboard mapping is not fully supported. If I write in the chat/console some letters using dead keys, that doesn't always work depending on the dead key. I guess the problem comes from the fact that the U.S. Int. adds some weird dead keys to deal with some accents.

      Regular ones works :

      ê : combination of dead key ^ then e
      ñ : combination of dead key ~ then n

      Some non « conventional » doesn't work

      é : combination of dead key ' then e : Minecraft result : 'é
      è : combination of dead key ` then e : Minecraft result : `è

      But other non « conventional » works :

      ë : combination of dead key " then e : Minecraft result : ë

      These a just a few examples

      But I bet that's a Java issue I haven't try on Windows however.


      With previous versions but at least with launcher 1.3.4 and Minecraft 1.7.2, the dead keys are just not registered at all.

      Uptate 2:
      It seems that every keyboard mapping with dead keys is affected.

      Uptate 3:
      The issue is for any Keyboard mapping using dead keys.
