If input methods on your device are implemented using the standard API, 
completing IM support in WebKit/GTK+ won't be much work. I've described 
what's left to be done in this bug:


There is already complete enough support for input methods in SVN trunk 
to support the virtual keyboard in the Nokia internet tablets for 
example, but more complex predictive text input methods will need a few 
more functions to be implemented.
