I doubt that any IME will provide the right results in Tix as long as the
default setting on his W2K machine is Russian (CP866/ACP1251). Doesn't Tk
use the current encoding to internalize into unicode? I don't think that
merely switching the INPUT locale is going to make any difference. Maybe OP
should try to set his regional settings to default to vietnamese.
