Other than the eight content variant languages and Dutch, these are the only Wikipedias for which we're not on by default. David, could you have a look at each of these languages and what IMEs they use, to see if this needs any further work?

From manual checking, I was able to cursor, link, type in Latin, type in an IME, copy/paste, review changes and switch editors in each of arc, chr, dv, got, km, lo, mytet, th, and tw.

However, in chr switching caused the skin to become part of the editor, which I think is probably caused by an unclosed <div> somewhere in their site config. In my the cursoring has the fun multi-character glyph behaviour shared with several Indic languages.

Theoretically, subject to community happiness, we should be good to go.
