Problem

if I want to change the auto-generated topic of an item in the content view it is not possible to use a chinese input method using the Windows XP build-in input methods. (although copy and paste of chinese characters works)

ideas & workarounds

it might be related to the fact that Contents is based on Delphi's TTreeView which is based on Windows Win32 TreeView/Outline which does not support Unicode editing; an entirely new component would have to be used to build the Contents window
