hi timothy,

very glad to hear from you about CLIM support!  the crippling thing to
our application is that we have never been able to support text input
of non-ASCII (i.e. not even single-byte iso-8859-1 or the like).  it
looks like this problem was first reported as [spr30362] by colleagues
from cambridge; for some reason, later communication on the same issue
has [spr30363] in the `Subject:' line, which is probably wrong.

a possibly related problem is [spr30570] about display of korean.  we
have encouraged our users to move to utf-8 lately, and euc-kr support
is less pressing now.  but for all i remember, korean display (maybe
font selection) fails to work in a utf-8 universe too.  if need be, we
will be happy to provide further test cases.

                                                      all best  -  oe
