Many thanks Ken,
I love them!
I could even see the greek accented characters, although due to kernel
limitations, I can't write them.
For those who wish to type accented characters in console and using vim, it is
pretty easy, you can do that using digraphs.
and so on ...
You can enter a digraph, while you are in insert mode and you are pressing CTRL-k
and typing 2 extra chars (:digraphs to see them all).
Excellent job ken, I don't use console that much but it is much better now.
