 The book contains text that describes how to configure XKB. XKB is
 sufficient for input of text in European, but not Asian languages. For
 Asian languages (e.g., Chinese, Japanese, Korean), special "X Input
 Method" software is needed, but it is not in the book.

 There are many X input method programs. One of them (SCIM) is described in
 the Wiki: http://wiki.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/wiki/InputMethods

 Please either integrate that page into the book, or add a link. SKIM is
 also good for KDE users (it doesn't replace SCIM, it is an additional
 package). The testcase is the same, except that you start "skim -d"
 instead of "scim -d".
