* @Short_description: An input method context supporting table-based input methods
* @Title: GtkIMContextSimple
* GtkIMContextSimple is a simple input method context supporting table-based
* input methods. It has a built-in table of compose sequences that is derived
* from the X11 Compose files.
* GtkIMContextSimple reads additional compose sequences from the first of the
* following files that is found: ~/.config/gtk-3.0/Compose, ~/.XCompose,
* /usr/share/X11/locale/$locale/Compose (for locales that have a nontrivial
* Compose file). The syntax of these files is described in the Compose(5)
* manual page.
* GtkIMContextSimple also supports numeric entry of Unicode characters
* by typing Ctrl-Shift-u, followed by a hexadecimal Unicode codepoint.
* For example, Ctrl-Shift-u 1 2 3 Enter yields U+0123 LATIN SMALL LETTER
* G WITH CEDILLA, i.e. ģ.
