The keyboard handling is OS-specific, so the link to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dead_key does not help for Oberon as it only describes Windows and macOS.
How the A2O handles keys (dead keys or cursor keys) is up to A2O.
For example: native ProjectOberon doesn't handle dead keys at all (characters >7FH are not supported anyhow), and if ProjectOberon runs on an emulator it depends a little bit on the emulator how cursor keys are handled. The Oberon OS is not very good at defining this.

For S3, http://www.ethoberon.ethz.ch/keyboard.html explains how
accented characters 80H to FFH are typed on a US keyboard using dead
keying. Ref. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dead_key . At present I don't
have S3 at hand but try in A2O.
To obtain eacute, for example, dead key Alt+' and then e. OK, except
that in A2O I get apostrophe e; not eacute.
Does dead keying work in A2O? Am I misinterpreting the instructions?
Is a configuration required?
Thanks, ... Lyall E.
