The Java2 platform provides the foundation for supporting a wide variety languages and customs. Text is represented with the Unicode character set, which covers most scripts in use today. Additionally, Java2 provides services for localized text processing, orientation of components in a user interface, and a rich set of capabilities for displaying and interacting with visually complex text. This talk describes how IBM's forthcoming release of the Java2 platform supports right-to-left scripts such as Arabic and Hebrew, Thai, and the Devanagari writing system, used to write Hindi.
