Hello Justin,

the IME has not much to do with that. The IME class lets programmers 
tell the browser that this particular field is supposed to get a 
particular input but the User is always the highest authority and can 
always change the IME conversionMode in a System toolbar! Beyond that 
this recommendation system does not work in Chrome or Firefox, just 
Internet Explorer supports it, Opera completely left me standing in the 
rain.... Well anyways: IME is to help make the users life easier but he 
can input both full and half width characters at any time! Which means 
it is related to the Validator imho.
