Beats me. The BabelPad page casually mentions ďthe BabelMap edit bufferĒ
in the description of a function.

BabelPad is about 8 MB versus the 7 MB of BabelMap, so I would say that
BabelPad is basically BabelMap with added functionality, like normal
text editor functions and some added tools for inserting characters
(e.g., pinyin lookup).

Iím not sure whether BabelMap has some functionality that BabelPad
hasnít got (there are differences in menus), but I donít find any
additional tools for picking characters. You still have to copy them to
the clipboard.
