Hi all,

I' am using since a few days Mac OS X Mountain Lion and found that while
retaining all my previous Org mode settings and Aquamacs settings, now I am
unable to obtain diacritics in Org Mode that is letters such as è à etc.

I only obtain them displayed in Org when they are inside a Org heading
For example: I can write:

* è

and the è is correctly displayed.

But not when I write it in the text.

The symbol of a square appears instead of accented letters.

The coding systems I used with previous Mac OS X (Snow Leopard and Lion) is
always the same: that is UTF8
If I try to insert diacritics opening the virtual keyboard from upper menu
in Mac OS X nothing change: I always obtain the symbol of a square.

This problem seems to affects only Org Mode because if I use another mode
in Aquamacs I have no problems at all in displaying diacritics.

So I am unable to understand what is the cause of this problem.

Has anybody found this? Any idea how to fix it?

Thanks in advance.

Pierfranco

Do you have this error with 

emacs -Q
C-x f ~/myfile.org
[some diacritics]

?

If you use another version of Org on top of the Emacs version,
maybe you can also check emacs -Q + loading this version and see
what does not works.

Sorry I didnt' mention that I use the latest version of everything: so
Org 7.8.11 and Aquamacs version 2.4. based on GNU Emacs 23.3.50.1.

Bastien thanks for the suggestion.
I have tried what you suggested and used Emacs from the Terminal
Application in Mac OS X: in this case I have no problems. Diacritics
inserted in the org file by hitting the proper key in the Italian keyboard
layout are correctly displayed:

File Edit Options Buffers Tools Help


diacritics è

à ì

diacritics are displayed


-uuu:---F1  myfile.org     All L1
(Fundamental)-----------------------------
Loading image...done

What should I do to check which version of Emacs is charged when I use the
Terminal application?

M-x emacs-version RET
M-x org-version RET

I'm not a Mac user, but I'm pretty sure ~$ emacs from the Terminal
is *not* linked to the Aquamacs executable.

I don't know what is the equivalent to "~$ emacs -Q" for launching 
a bare Aquamacs instance, but maybe for now just remove any .emacs.el 
and see if the problem comes from your configuration?

The most likely explanation is that the font you are using isn't
includig those code points.  Try a different font.

Just confirming your assumption:

Emacs in terminal usually doesn't link to Aquamacs.app.

moritz@Moritzs-MacBook-Air ~ % /usr/bin/emacs --version
GNU Emacs 22.1.1

Pretty old. (I'm on Lion, not Mountain Lion, but I don't think there's a
difference)


Aquamacs itself is pretty horrible. It breaks so many things from Emacs.
I'd suggest moving to Emacs.app, installed via Homebrew or downloaded
from http://emacsformacosx.com/

Homebrew will take care of linking emacs to /usr/local/bin/, the .app
from the website won't.
