           Summary: [gtk] cannot type letters with dead keys in textarea
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 526+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebKit Gtk
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: arenevier at fdn.fr

I'm using some dead keys to type french letters. For exemple, I have a key
mapped to dead_acute. I type that key + e to get é.

That works fine in <input> fields, but in <textarea>s, I cannot get accentuated
letters. For <input>s, keydown events are passed to
document()->frame()->doTextFieldCommandFromEvent() but not in textarea. That
function will then call gtk_im_context_filter_keypress with gtk frontend.

I'll attach a patch to call that function also for <textearea>s. That seems to
fix the problem on gtk. That may also enable other input method on textareas.
