How can I do this?

As I said in my next post, the problem is the same in Emacs, without
Gnus. It seems thus to be a keymap problem.
In other applications, when I type ^ followed by a letter which could
have such an accent, it is displayed before. For example, if I want to
write the verb ``to be'' in French, it is written ``^etre.'' It should
be related to my keymap. I am using two different computers where I have
the problem. The first is on Debian, where my keymap is US-en. The other
one is under Ubuntu, use a be-fr keymap, but both computers do not allow
me to write words like ``^etre'' correctly.
Note that both computers run with an American or British English
interface (rather than using French front-ends for GUI's).

Any idea?

P.S.: My emacs is not (as far as I know!) setup to treat composing chars
specially.
