Unicode mode that doesn't turn off features.

Unicode mode that doesn't turn off features. It's practically standard at this point to edit HTML in UTF8 but slickedit turns off several features in UTF8  :-\

We definitely plan to improve our Unicode support. Column selections need to support proportional fonts. Unfortunately this will cause slow performance but most of the time it doesn't matter.

Other features like vertical lines and wordwrap margins are not possible to do in a perfectly useful way unless you're using a subset of Unicode characters which are all the same width.
