The reason that GTK or wxWindows really doesn't help that much is
in order to do things like faces, invisible text, wrapping or
truncation of lines, etc, we need to handle text redisplay ourselves.
That's the complex stuff, and Pango goes partway to handling
Mule-related font stuff, but none of the windowing systems support a
text widget with the capabilities we need.
Excuse my ignorance, but are you sure this is still true with recent
toolkit? All this looks quite flexible to me:
But I am by no means a GUI toolkit, nor XEmacs-redisplay expert.
PS: Note that I am not trying to convince anyone of GTK as
toolkit-of-choice. It merely serves as example.
