Is there a way to use other character set such as ISO-8859-2 ?

Moe works with any ISO-8859 character set (except for a few functions) as
long as you set the console appropiately and don't mix character sets
neither in the same document nor in the same session.

Should I set locale? Now I tried with Eastern European keyboard and it
does not recognize my keys, and it gives message.

Moe ignores locale on all systems except on Cygwin because Cygwin uses UTF-8 as "C" locale, something not allowed by POSIX.

$ I enter I think č or ć and I get: Key code 141(0x8D) ignored

This is because your console is not set in ISO-8859-2 mode. Note that 0x8D is not a printable ISO-8859-2 character.

When the console is correctly configured, the last help screen from moe's online help should show all the characters from ISO-8859-2 like this:

Is there way to use Emacs keybindings?

No. Moe's keys are fixed.

I am also looking for macros.

Moe does not have macros.

Do you know how to use that character set. Other character set I would
use is ISO-8859-5 and ISO-8859-1 with German umlauts, but that one is
maybe supported by ISO-8859-15 as well.

I simply click on settings->encoding->ISO-8859-2 on my console emulator (Konsole from KDE 3.5) and it works.

If the editor does support all ISO- character sets then maybe you
should say so in description, as from description I have assumed it
supports only ISO-8859-15. Then I was thinking 15 would encompass
ISO-8859-2 and ISO-8859-1 and maybe few others, but it is not so.

I say so in the description:
"GNU moe is a console text editor for ISO-8859 and ASCII character encodings."

OTOH, I do not test other ISO-8859 charsets, so I can't guarantee that they work.
