I was under the impression you could only use ASCII.

Seems rather unlikely considering that UTF-8 was originally invented for 
Plan 9?


Turns out it is the same as anywhere else in Plan 9 - tap ALT (not hold) 
then the letter x then the hex code for the rune you are trying to enter 
and a semicolon (if fewer than 6 hexadecimal nybbles).


Example:  ALT x 2 1 d 4 ;


There are shorter versions for some characters - see the man page 
keyboard (6) for details

works very well! What pleasantly! Compose key and mnemonics are
fantastic idea!

I came to this impression after reading:
"Sam edits uninterpreted ASCII text."

Understandable, but you missed the last paragraph of the abstract, which reads, "This paper is reprinted from Software—Practice and Experience, Vol 17, number 11, pp. 813-845, November 1987. The paper has not been updated for the Plan 9 manuals. Although Sam has not changed much since the paper was written, the system around it certainly has. Nonetheless, the description here still stands as the best introduction to the editor." (You're not the only one to miss things like this, I do it all the time.)

Thanks for clarifying. Now why does sam not display utf-8 characters on my setup?

pretty much the only major change to sam since 87 was (i believe)  the migration from ASCII (on Unix v10 and p9 Ed1) to utf-8.

if you are not seeing unicode characters it is most probably because you don’t have a font with the appropriate glyphs.
