I'm just using the event.key.keysym.unicode field if it is < 256, on
each SDL_KEYDOWN event. It works fine for chars that need "dead" keys
(pressing first Ž then a, for example). However the < 256 test might be
a problem for some languages, I guess... I'm just handling ISO-8859-1,
nothing more.

Please remove ".ARGL.invalid" from my email when replying.
