This is only tangentially related, but for those who (like me) are interested
in linguistics, I submitted a while ago an ASCII-IPA keyboard map to the Yudit
author, who put it on the Yudit website and may include it in future versions.
This allows one to type in the ASCII-IPA alphabet as specified by Evan
Kirshenbaum and have real Unicode IPA show up in Yudit. (IPA = International
Phonetic Alphabet)

Also, if you use the yudit package, you will be getting yudit 1.5. You may be
interested in yudit 2.0, which the yudit package maintainer dislikes due to
the elimination of menus and the replacement of them with special buttons.
I don't mind that, myself, and it has advantages, none of which I recall now.
Look at http://www.yudit.org/ and see for yourself which one you prefer.

Since I generally use vim for most editing, I think I'm going to check out
those packages that Wichert mentioned. But yudit is worth looking into as well.
