On Windows 7, if I need to enter Chinese, I can setup an input method whereby when I type something such as
hao Windows automatically suggests a list of characters to choose from, among which I can for instance choose
好 by clicking on one of the characters in the list. This is to give an example of how an input method works.
Now my question. Given that several Unicode characters encoding math symbols exist, in order to enter these, it would be cumbersome to enter the numeric Unicode codes for each of these, so it would be useful to have an input method.
Given that the number of keys on a keyboard is about 120, it makes sense to have an input method on Windows so that when turned on in the language switcher in lower-right hand corner, when I type
\int the integral sign is automatically entered into my text file as a Unicode character.
Without such input method, inputting unicode for use with the
unicode-math package would be cumbersome. So, what IMs (input methods) are available (perhaps via installable support programs), to enable Unicode math characters to be easily entered?
