proportionally spaced font into fixed-width? That's an item on the todo
list, since there aren't that many fixed-width fonts available. Might
keep that in mind when writing the code (doesn't need to be implemented

width array parameter of the font rendering function.) I'll keep it in

time. From what I've seen of the code, intercepting and killing the IME
in normal/visual mode shouldn't be very hard.
This behavior is obviously desirable with the Windows IME, so IMHO it
isn't necessary to add a new option. It's extremely silly to map a
Japanese character to a vim command in Windows: in order to use it,
you'd have to press alt-~ (IME enable key), type the character, press
enter to confirm, and then press alt-~ again to disable the IME. It'll
never happen. And the Windows IME support seems almost completely
separate from the X support, so any change I would make wouldn't bother
Sounds like you guys are sorting out all of the other issues :). Thanks
for looking into it.
