You might find
https://live.gnome.org/GnomeOS/Design/Whiteboards/ExtraCharacters (which
is a general discussion of entering extra characters in Gnome and Linux)
and 
http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/Accented_Characters to be
interesting reading. There are a number of ways of doing this, and you
may want to consider different approaches.

Hope this helps,

James.
