You're not wrong, but everyone doing i18n work in Java should be using the new
JFC ("swing") replacements for the old AWT components. I have no trouble using
mixed C, J, & K in menus, on buttons, etc. on a US Win95 machine. BiDi is coming
as part of the Java2D API, which will be part of the core in Java 1.2.
