	Correct =)

	Sure - so we render the cursor manually in an overlay; so we have all
the positioning information necessary in the client.



	I suspect that has the position of the blinking cursor that you want to
popup the IME window near.

	Please be aware that (with shared editing) the cursor can move outside
your control - and (I guess) we should prolly cancel the IME interaction
in that case.
