First, a subclass of XAP_EncodingManager should be written (its task is to
return correct languages ISO code (such as "en"), territory code such as "US"
and charset name (such as "ISO-8859-1"). glib in CVS has the code to do this
AFAIR, and also tables in xap_EncodingManager.cpp can help with this.
After that 2 things remain:
* input of text (just get unicode value of the symbol typed and insert
into the doc)
* measuring width/drawing
It seems that's all that is needed. (If there are no picularities
handling of CJK under Win*).
