I'm not sure whether I want to install Keyman. If it's one of those programs that constantly run in the background, I'd rather not have it. As for Babelpad, I'll download it when it enhances its Windows ME build. I've managed to make Yudit use the fonts installed in Windows (easy, there's a file in it explaining how to do that :)) ), and now it works pretty well. Also, it allows you to make your own keymaps easily. I'm still not really good at working with its command line, but for the rest it's quite powerful. And its bidirectional support is very good (as well as context-sensitive shape choosing for scripts like Devanagari and Arabic). And it uses Ghostview for printing and previewing, so it's no problem with my installation :)) . Christophe. Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
