I am using English language as the default. I hardly ever login to Gnome
session in Chinese. With UNICODE & UTF-8 (UNICODE Transformation Format)
support, you can enter any UNICODE characters in a document. You don't
have to use Chinese menu. Just remember to send emails with UTF-8
encoding (except for some web-mail users, who can receive only BIG-5 or
GB-2312 encoding.) Text files are typically saved as UTF-8 encoding.

My Ctrl+Space bar doesn't work, maybe I haven't upgraded to the latest.
Your setup works better than mine in this particular aspect! I might
wait for Fedora Core 3 before I have time to upgrade everything

I use the ">" character to page through the selection.
