If multilingual support is implemented in platform-specific fashion, then it 
will be incomplete till all platform variations are taken into account.

I didn't know this. Neither typing it nor cut-n-paste would work for me (VM 
3.7.7 on Linux). I am able to use U+0Cxx characters fine in other Linux apps 
(UTF-8 aware). Am I missing something in my Squeak setup?

Is it working on LInux? for Kannada? I have some public schools that are 
waiting for Kannada support. Is there anything I can do to speed it up?

Essentially, Morphs that accept text input. In X/KDE/GNOME, there is a 
keyboard layout indicator that shows what keyboard layout is in effect. But 
how can a user get hints when Squeak runs fullscreen or in console mode?
