I would like to point out that "SX/Ŝ" button you see up there when making the post. It Un-Xes the text of your post when you're using the X method. A lot of you seem to not notice it's existence. I'd just think that you might as well use it as it's there.

If you want an Esperanto Keyboard Layout, please right click and save as:

http://neserver.serveftp.net/PersonalUpload/fafa...

After you have that installed, you go to your IME settings, and add the keyboard layout, not language, Esperanto to whicher set language(s) you have. After that, you can press CTRL+SHFT to switch between layouts.

To get an accent, just press the ` key beside the 1 and then press any letter that has an accent such as ĉ, ĵ, ĝ, ĥ, etc.

Tadah! No more X's! rideto.gif

PS: Can someone like, sticky this or something?

There is a program called Ek! which is very useful. It simply removes an x and puts an accent above the previous letter.

Does EK! work with any program? e.g. can I use it in microsoft word??

For Mac OS X, I made an Esperanto keyboard layout for my own use, but I guess that it would be useful for any other Mac Esperantists.
Esperanto.zip
To install the keyboard layout, unzip the package, getting two files: the layout itself, and an icon for it (the Esperanto flag) of the same name. Click on the icon on your desktop for your hardrive, go to the System folder, then the Library folder, then scroll down to and open the Keyboard Layouts folder. Drag the two files into the Keyboard Layouts folder, then restart your Macintosh.

After that, the layout is installed. You simply have to launch System Preferences, go to International, go to Input Menu, then scroll down and select the Esperanto keyboard layout. Then, check "Use one input source in all documents" and Show input menu in menu bar, so that you can easily switch between layouts from a menu.

To type in the regular English alphabet, you can switch back to the default layout through the menu, or hold down the option key and type lower case characters, or upper case characters (if you hold down the shift key while pressing the option key).

I'm using a template for MS Word that works quite well called Esperanto Template.dot

The full instructions for installing and using the template can be found at www.wgtw.co.uk/software/abeodoc.htm.

I'm also working on a template for use in StarOffice, I'll post it when/if I get it working.

Yes, Ek! works with any Unicode compatible program, which certainly includes MS Word. (However, your e-mail system will have to support UTF-8 perhaps, you may have to experiment with the settings, and also I've not yet come accross many forums/chatrooms, even E-o ones, which support it. Hopefully the "tujmesaĝilo" here does!)

You can choose how to indicate the accented letter - by a prefix, or a postfix, or a ctrl-alt type combination, but the X system works best for me. When you want a real X to appear, ekz, in French words such as châteaux you simply type the X twice. (otherwise you get châteaŭ!) but this is not a great problem. Also you can switch it on and of with a mouse click on its icon, or by a control key sequence you can define, eg CTRL-ALT-SPACE. Best of all it's free. Here is it's address:-

Yep! The only problem I've had with Ek! is when I forget to turn it off in my email program which still isn't Unicode compliant.

Otherwise, it works like a charm.

A tip: If you're already used to the x-system or if you use the x-system in non-Unicode programs, turn of the automatic au -> aŭ feature or you'll be typing aŭx a bunch of times.

Sorry, accidental double post, while attempting to edit my post.

For those of you who use KDE* on Linux, you can also get an eo keymap. Once installed, it puts a little flag on your startbar which you can use to switch back and forth between your regular keymap and the eo keymap with a single mouseclick. When you switch to the eo keymap, it switches it globally, so you can type the superscripted characters in ALL your programs.

* Probably with GNOME, as well, but I don't use GNOME so I can't be sure.

Actually, for Mac OS X, the Unicode is build in. You don't need other programs. Just change the keyboard layout from US to US Extended.
