Better Unicode support/custom font support

I've noticed stuff like áéíóúñ doesn't work, which would be nice to have, and it must understandably be the font's fault.

This might also be a stretch, but support for Japanese (and CJK in general I suppose) and IME input would be nice as well.

I've been working on this particular problem for the past few days, and even designed a new font for MP, but unfortunately have run into a bit of a showstopper in the framework I'm using, so it'll have to wait until that's fixed. This is a known issue, though, and I'd like to get it fixed;  not sure about Japanese support, as I feel like that would require a lot of extra work. Maybe I'll revisit the idea once enough people express interest in writing in Japanese from within the software. 


I'd definitely like to invest in this tool once CJK gets supported. I don't know how raylib works, but would it be somewhat easier to implement custom fonts?
