    ??? I have never seen an editor which would have as perfect support
    for international text as it is implemented in Vim. The only
    disadvantage is that Vim accepts only monospaced fonts: this is
    not a problem on Unix, where one can always use -misc-fixed, which
    covers almost all Unicode ranges, but for Windows users searching for
    a monospaced font supporting, say, Polytonic Greek might be a
    difficult task.

    Again, I see no problem here. The newline character can be matched as
    "\n" in Vim regxsps, so that you can easily replace it with anything
    else, if necessary.
