WORK AROUND Minimizing the IME bar into the task bar avoids the problem. ###@###.### 2002-01-11

EVALUATION I tried this on a vanilla Windows XP Korean FCS machine, and found that I could input Korean in those text fields. It seems to me that the only problem is that the IME status bar gets hidden, so the user cannot tell the current input mode. But this problem can be avoided by minimizing the IME status bar so that the IME status is displayed within the task bar. ###@###.### 2002-01-11 I could input Korean without minimizing the lauguagebar, after applying the Service Pack 1 for XP. Seems like a Windows' bug. ###@###.### 2002-11-05
