Thai and Hindi Support in the Java Platform

This talk will look at the new Thai and Hindi support being
added to a future release of the Java(tm) platform. These
locales provide considerable challenge because of the complex
text layout support required, the difficulties in providing
word breaking for the Thai language, the re-ordering of
characters required for proper collation, the
non-Gregorian/Julian calendar systems, and of course the
independence from the host platform required by Java.
We will look at each of those issues and the solutions used as
well as plans for future extensions.
