Hi David,

1. Susan Torres of ISS knows me well. EGT localized the Mac OS into Irish
Gaelic and Welsh, and are working on Inuktitut.

2. I'm very involved in European standards (CEN) and ISO standards. You've
probably seen my postings. Check out my web pages -- lots of Apple stuff
and Standards stuff there!

This sounds really interesting. I've been waiting to find something that
can use all my Everson Mono 10646 fonts.

Need any informed testers?
