Created this because I've been in Wales for a bit and realised that OS4 lacked
support.
This is only part of the puzzle - ISO-8859-14 seems poorly supported in OS4.

Topaz/8 needs an ISO-8859-14 version, otherwise OS4 tends to default to using
ISO-8859-1 which lacks W-circumflex (Ð) and some other characters.  Properly
written
programs with a Welsh catalog in the correct charset should still display
correctly
however.

The other issue is keymap - I've created a modified keymap which has the
circumflex characters on Alt-W etc, as well as via DeadCircumflex (Alt-H).
Alt-D is DeadDotAbove which is useful for the other ISO-8859-14 characters but
probably not much use for Welsh language typing.

Note that the Deja Vu font doesn't have all of the DotAbove characters anyway.
