There are platform-specific things that drscheme hooks into. On the
mac, you can enable various international modes for your keyboard, eg
for Chinese you can type pinyin or you can use the more sophisticated
things that real Chinese use when typing.

For certain mathematical characters, you can type the latex macro name
and then hit alt-\ (on windows) or control-\ (on the mac) and have the
character turn into the right thing.

You can also use the \u notation to type in the code point of a
unicode character. If you do that in the REPL, drscheme will sometimes
respond with an actual glyph that you can copy and paste back into the
