Thank you for your helpful information. I hope it will also work on
FSF Emacs even though there are a few diffrences between FSF Emacs
and XEmacs. Firstly I have to make sure whether my Emacs supports XIM
as you mentioned.

Thanks so much for your very important point. I will later.

Thank you for your useful information. It will save my much time.
