Ruby::Tk is really pissing me off.
In the mood: aggravatedaggravated

Use Ruby GTK, it has pango and does many char sets with aplomb.
Why use Tk?

Because I already wrote my Japanese drill tools in Ruby::Tk, and just wanted to make "quick" modifications instead of rewriting things from scratch (which, admittedly, once I gave up on it working correctly and hacked around it, really were fairly quick modifications).

But, yes, I was pretty damned tempted to dump it completely.

It's quite possibly as much Mac OSX's fault as Tk's, there's some not playing well with others involved, I suspect (because, interestingly enough, everything worked just fine as long as I stuck with Japanese characters, even though it's all the same CJK unified code pages).
