When I use the Maltese (mt) keyboard on Emacs to enter Maltese
characters, a substitute character is inserted instead.  I can insert
the Maltese characters using the latin-3-postfix input method, but not
directly from the Maltese keyboard.

The Maltese characters are, using the latin-3-postfix key sequence to
describe them: c. g. h/ z. C. G. H/ Z.

When I try to input them, instead I get: c g h z C G H Z
