Hi ,

I am using scim-sinhala on gnome and i found some specific thing
Because in scim-sinhala "oo" produces ඔ backspace ඕ this can only do the right thing if the backspace key in an application like openoffice.org-writer
will always treat backspace as "delete previous character", so backspace cannot be rebound to do something else


so if my application treating backspace differently  suppose  'deleting next character' scim-sinhala will fail.
and in openoffice user can change behaviour of backspace event.

to avoid this problem we should implement preedit in scim-sinhala so there will be no need to use backspace event.
and such dependencies will not come.
there is lots of scim ime's using preedit like hangul, pinyin.

Regards,
