I have just heard that Helix version of gedit can treat multibyte
languages while Debian version cannot.  Though I have not tested
Helix one, I eager that Helix improvement is united to the upstream
(or Debian packages, if packaging is responsible), since a text
editor without multibyte support is almost useless for CJK people
including me.
