      Thanks for your help.

      I'm not using the :imap command. I'm using vim keymap files, stored
      in the standard
      place: ~/.vim/keymap/

      I define my own keymap files, and the one in question right now is
      called deseret-sampa_utf-8.vim
      I'll gladly send you (or anyone else) a copy, but I'm reluctant to
      attach such a file for
      a message going to a distribution list

      After the usual header boilerplate, deseret-sampa_utf-8.vim contains
      lines like the following:

      o <Char-0x1042C>
      oW <Char-0x1042C>

      u <Char-0x1042D>
      I <Char-0x1042E>
      E <Char-0x1042F>

      a <Char-0x10430>
      ae <Char-0x10430>

      6 <Char-0x10431>
      2 <Char-0x10432>

      U <Char-0x10433>

      aJ <Char-0x10434>
      aY <Char-0x10434>

      aW <Char-0x10435>
      w <Char-0x10436>

      On the left-hand side are ASCII-range input sequences inspired by the
      transliteration of the International Phonetic Alphabet. On the right-
      hand side are
      the code point values of the Deseret Alphabet characters (block
      starting U+10400)
      with the corresponding phoneme value.

      I select this keymap in vim in the usual way

      :set keymap=deseret_sampa_utf-8.vim

      and everything works as expected except for the lines having '6' and
      '2' on the left-hand side.
      When I type 2, for example, instead of a U+10432 character being
      entered and displayed, as
      expected, I see just '2' on the screen.
