    C-x 8 shorthands for curved quotes, Euro, etc. · 4b41540b

    Although C-x 8 lets you insert arbitrary Unicode characters,
    it's awkward to use this to insert commonly used symbols such as curved
    quotes, the Euro symbol, etc.  This patch adds simpler sequences for
    characters commonly found in English text and in basic math.
    For example, assuming the Alt key works on your keyboard and iso-transl
    is loaded, one can now type "A-[" instead of "A-RET LEFT SIN TAB RET"
    to get the character "‘" (U+2018 LEFT SINGLE QUOTATION MARK).
    (Bug#20499)
    * doc/emacs/mule.texi (Unibyte Mode):
    A few other printing characters now work too.
    * etc/NEWS: Document this.
    * lisp/international/iso-transl.el (iso-transl-char-map):
    Also support the following characters:
    ‐ ‑ ‒ – — ― ‘ ’ “ ” † ‡ • ′ ″ € № ← →  − ≈ ≠ ≤ ≥
