I have set up some abbreviations to turn certain ASCII strings into
appropriate Unicode counterparts, for example from '==>' to '=>'. This works
One problem, however, is when I now have a Unicode character sitting in my
buffer, I can't jump to it easily using the insert-mode 't' and 'f'
commands. Is there any way I could do this? The best for me would be if I
could do a 't=' and have it count occurrences of '=>' among the things to
jump to, since I originally typed '=' to get that character.
A related but different issue is getting those characters into the command
line buffer, for example if I want to search for a a string containing
Unicode characters. My abbreviations won't work in that buffer... is there a
way to get them to work? Or what about yanking/putting text between the main
buffer and the command buffer?

This mailing list has almost no traffic. While in principle it
is the correct one for your question, in practice you should
send a new message to vim_use (don't bother mentioning that you
posted here; just send a new message).

I can comment on this. If you yank some text (e.g. yiw), you can
paste it into the command line by pressing Ctrl-R then " (a
double quote for the unnamed register, see ':help registers').
