[Bug 1627288] Re: Compose-key examples wrong
Hi Gunnar, apologies, my mistake. You're right: single key presses do
work. I must have got confused and thought only simultaneous key presses

Compose-key examples wrong
Status in ubuntu-docs package in Ubuntu:
In the 16.10 desktop help the examples of using the compose key seem
to be wrong since they don't indicate simultaneous key presses. Eg I
think the first example would be better written as "Press <compose> +
' then a letter to place an acute accent over that letter, such as é."
(Note: I can't reproduce the desktop help formatting in this comment.)
The user presses ' while still holding down <compose>, releases both
keys, and then presses a letter.
