display tables



If I recall, there was a similar post to this a while back but I
wasn't able to locate it in the archive.

At the moment when I read text with chars in it above ascii 127, I
have to resort to either remembering the octal values of the chars
that are likely to appear in the document (a tall order for Russian
texts) or use c-e cap-c to get the name of the char if the document is
in plain ascii. I suppose my questions are these:
* Why is there both a speak-char and a speak-display-char function?
* Is there an elegant way of getting movement commands to speak ascii
chars above 127 using the display table rather than hacking the
functions directly?

Thanks in advance.
