Having the pre-composed characters is a boon, and I would hope that UniKey
is defaulting to precomposed specifically to avoid rendering issues. I've
tried dozens of times to find a way to analyze the output from Unikey and
from the more popular (but not free/open) Vietkey, but I have yet to find
a decent text editor that allows me to view the actual encoding.
Any suggestions on a tool that I can type into on Windows and then display
the actual UTF-8 encoding?
P.S. Also for all you Vietnamese/Linux/Unicode buffs out there... Any
pointers on how to getting SKIM to actual work? I have to run a windows VM
just to type Vietnamese currently.
