I think there’s nothing specific to Japanese about that problem -- or even
to input methods, pasting stuff from a web page has the same problem -- and
that the correct way to solve it is warnings at the time of saving a file,
On the quay of the little Black Sea port, where the rescued pair came once

assumed to be mad, though it may only have been indiscriminating. (Saki)
