How did you get the standard US keyboard to compose extended characters???
I want to know! Describe what you mention as "a compose key setup"?

..and I still have no idea what keys to press to type the euro symbol! :-(

What I have done so far is switch to US-intl or french temporarily, type
Alt-Gr + e,
switch back to US. There must be an easier way to do it.

Talking about international characters: I always have trouble finding fonts
cover iso-8859-15 correctly. What are you using?
