This talk will look at the Thai and Hindi support which have newly been
added to the latest release of Sun's Java(tm) 2 Runtime Environment.
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 also focus
on writing Java input methods for these locales with an emphasis on
implementing Thai input sequence checking.
