the trouble is that (unlike tk on other platforms) AquaTk does not 
handle unicode text display & editing very well/at all at present 
since it still relies on the old model of mac encodings & associated 
fonts that was implemented on classic MacOS.
It may take just as long for that to change as it will for AlphaX 
since many of the same people are involved in both projects :-)
if anybody familiar with ATSUI and carbon inline text input would 
like to help out, feel free ...
