Sure, but the problem still remains that while a lot of new apps are
being developed with UTF8 support it is kind of hopeless that there are
no program which can be used independant of Desktop choice to switch
keyboards. It should be put in Xfree86 I think.

I have never understood what that is good for because it has never
worked and as I tested it now on a different computer with the Gnome 2.2
RAM muncher it still does not work. Only difference is that now it
remembers it settings from last time I logged on. I guess KDE has
something similar (perhaps better), however I use neither Gnome nor KDE
on my old computer as it has 96Mb RAM.

What? I'm talking about if I run my program on Windows. Windows has a
far better solution at the moment for keyboard switching than any Linux
Desktops. The only difference is that I'm not sure it outputs UTF-8 or
latinX etc...
