Everywhere compose is configured the way you expect.
Nice link, thank you, although missing a few things. Like how to query which
key is the compose key, and how to specify a key other than CapsLock. But
there's always Google, I suppose.
According to that link: "By default this function is not assigned to any key."
So... not so much "everywhere" as "by default, nowhere".
