If so, would it be possible for you to Charles> offer a hint as to how to set this up? Get XEmacs 21.4 (21.1 is not capable of handling UTF-8 effectively due to changes in an important subsystem, 21.4 also has UTF-8 autodetection). Get the leim, mule-ucs, and skk packages and any dependencies (get the sumo-mule or use M-x list-packages with "get required packages" option on). Get the psgml package. (Regular sumo or M-x list-packages.) Read the mule-ucs docs (Info or the README.XEmacs) for how to set up init.el/.emacs (it's a new package, nevertheless it probably will be deprecated within months as XEmacs 21.5 has native Unicode support, so I don't autoload it---and the fact that in the default config, the Unicode tables bump the VM footprint by about 3MB also militates against autoloading ;-). Start XEmacs, and there you go. You may need to save new files with C-u C-x C-w filename RET utf-8 RET; I haven't played with this enough to figure out some of the weirdnesses. There also was some brokenness in PSGML XML support; PSGML didn't start up in XML mode for some files (I think it was XHTML) and it would complain about the ":" characters which are legal in XML tags but not in HTML). As I wrote, a certain degree of skepticism is warranted. Emacs isn't for everybody, and this is still new functionality. But if you're willing to try it, let me know what you don't like and I'll fix it or twist arms to get it fixed. -- Institute of Policy and Planning Sciences http://turnbull.sk.tsukuba.ac.jp University of Tsukuba Tennodai 1-1-1 Tsukuba 305-8573 JAPAN Don't ask how you can "do" free software business; ask what your business can "do for" free software.
