not immediately - vile's only displaying 16-bit, no-combining-characters. It doesn't lose the bits... The characters you point out are >16-bits, of course. When I implemented that, I had in mind that there might be some need to integrate the wide(r) character type with the buffer content. I don't recall that happening (and don't see it in a quick check of the source). That's something I might work on after 9.8t (which will be mostly just catch-up, tidying up some work I started to update the Visual Studio ports). At the moment I'm most of the way done with the same thing for lynx (one regression to fix, one feature to add). -- Thomas E.
