Mac OS X (currently) comes with three kinds of keyboard layouts: Roman, Japanese
and Unicode. The layouts categorized as Unicode layouts can't be used with Mozilla.

Since Mozilla already supports Unicode internally, it would be good to make
Mozilla compatible with the Unicode services provided by the OS.

Mac folks correct me if I'm wrong here, I don't think this is an editor issue.

The editor has no clue what keyboard is being used, all it gets are events from 
the xptoolkit.

I tend to think this bug and bug 23363 are the same, at least it's about the 
same issue.

this bug is OS X specific; I don't think it's really a duplicate but I defer to 
Frank or Naoki.

Support Unicode keyboard require change the input method code to use Unicode 
also. We make this into two stages- 23363 for moving the Input Method code by 
using unicode on TSM 1.5 and this bug focus on support the keyboard by adding 
kUnicodeNotFromInputMethod handler. We need to solve 23363 first. 
Depends on: 23363
