Well, do you know anything about this caution that currently exists on
the page? Perhaps we need to wait for Alexander to comment?


Ed determines character boundaries incorrectly in multibyte locales. See
the Breaks Multibyte Characters section of the Locale Related Issues
page for a more general discussion of this problem. Use of Ed in
installation instructions for BLFS packages such as teTeX-3.0 is not a
problem, as BLFS instructions never use Ed to modify a file containing
non-ASCII characters.
