You can use Wimp_ProcessKey or OS_Byte (138 or 153) to send characters
to the window with the input focus. You'll need to place the cursor at
the end of the text manually.

A more involved way is to send a StrongED_ExecCmds message to StrongED
with either the text to insert or the name of a file to insert.
See StrongED manual -> Reference section -> List of Messages.

In the latter case you can include the EndOfText function to make sure
the cursor is at end of text.
