just to hit it twice; that gives you the apostrophe. HItting the space
bar won't do it, unfortunately -- if it did, this would be very
comfortable for people used to the US-International keyboard layout.
But a double tap on the apostrophe works great.
I'm very grateful to learn about keymap=accents. It's much more
convenient than the Ctrl-K commands I was struggling with! Thanks.
