I responded  the way I did because I know Chuck wants to move around
between Japanese, Chinese & Korean in his docs.

Some other programs let you change *the* locale during execution, but
AFAIK Tcl/Tk does it once at launch time.

OK, how do I do Japanese input in Tcl/Tk. Here is a little test program:

	tk useinputmethods 1
	set ntext " 日本語 (にほんご)"
	label .jpl -text $ntext
	button .jp -text $ntext
	entry .jpe -textvariable ntext
	entry .jpx -textvariable text
	pack .jpl .jp .jpe .jpx

I have cannaserver running, and kinput2 running with the "-xim" option.

I lunch a fresh kterm with the "-xim" option and with XMODIFIERS set to
"". I set LC_CTYPE to ja_JP.

I launch wish with that tcl script. A box with the four lines 
correctly displaying the Japanese appears.

How to I type Japanese into the text box? The usual Ctrl-space or
Ctrl-\ sequences do nothing. I can't even paste into it.
