    Yes, that's what I did too. But <Space><Backspace> is surely too
    *slow* to be practical for really typing Korean, n-est-ce pas?

    I did not think of the ESCAPE key. But ESCAPE also is not
    conveniently located on the keyboard. So using ESCAPE also will be
    relatively *slow*.

    I asked the question because I am working on writing some input method
    software ... Checking both Microsoft's and Apple's documentation on
    Korean Input Methods, I don't find anything describing which
    "official" key is to be used to "finalize" such syllables ...
