Problem with "United States International" keyboard configuration in Windows XP


Hi all.

My first message in the list. Please excuse my english, as i speak Spanish; i'm
fron Argentina.

I've come here beacuse of a problem i'm unable to find a solution yet.
I'm a programmer, and i use Geany, a cross platform IDE. And in a recent job i
got i'm forced to work on Windows XP (i use Ubuntu at home).

Well, on my job's machine i have an english keyboard (usually we use Latin
American keyboards here). So it's common that we set it to "United States
International", in order to use the combinations of ' and the vowels so we can
get the á, é, í, ñ, etc characters.

Problem is, when programming on Geany, and the keyboard is set to US
International, the ' key writes a ´, and the " kew is set to ¨. This may look
as
trivial, but is horrible when programming.

I understand this is a problem with GTK on Windows, as i've seen that other
programs seems to experiment the same behaviour (pidgin, if i remember it well,
i saw that data on some google results).

Does anyone knows how to fix this? I've installed the last gtk+ for windows
without luck.

Thanks in advance._______________________________________________
