Re: Java steps beyond the first 256 Uncode chars

     This sounds interesting...
     Could you give a bit more information perhaps? I assume extra fonts
     had to be installed and somehow configured before the characters were
     displayed, or does Netscape 3 now come with a full Unicode font? ;-)
     If there is a URL where we can check it out, that would be nice too.
        Cheers... Mike

We have today established that a Java applet running in the Netscape
Navigator Atlas Preview Release 2 on Solaris 2.5 successfully displays a
wide range of Unicode characters, including Japanese (Kanji, Hiragana,
fullwidth and halfwidth Katakana), Cyrillic and Greek.
Note, though, that the Java Applet Viewer of the JDK 1.0.2 running on
Solaris 2.5 does *not* succeed in displaying Unicode characters beyond the
first 256 characters (ie Latin 1).
