Thanks folks for reviews!

I think the most serious issue in my previous patch was searching, which Alexey
mentioned. Actually, with my previous patch, yen signs weren't found by
searching for a yen sign. Thanks for this catch.

As for searching, I think the current behavior (displayed yen signs were found
by searching a yen sign, but not found by a backslash) isn't the best as the
attachments in this bug ("Search by 0x5C on XXX") mention. I guess the best
behavior would be displayed yen signs, which are originally backslashes, can be
found by either a yen sign or a backslash. I guess we can normalize all yen
signs into backslashes to implement this behavior easily.

Anyway, I think I should avoid changing all behaviors at once. I won't change
the behavior of searching before I finish the copying issue and the font based
transcoding. I'll work on the copying issue first. I created a few rafactoring
patches to make the main patches smaller (Bug 36010 and Bug 36011).

I think I can post another patch with replies for other comments tomorrow.
Sorry for the latency.
