That's odd. I'm really sure that back in Potlatch 0.9x days (just before
1.0 came out) it was quite capable of taking letters like ô and ŷ
entered with the X-window 'compose' key. I live in Wales and need those
characters (and others) for streetnames all the time. But since 1.0 it's
been broken, and it's a PITA.
I just didn't get around to reporting it (until now).
