Re: Limitations of Unicode support in Windows 95/98

       One of my colleagues who was with me at the conference this
       week was able to talk with one of the MS engineers about the
       successor to Win98. (Apparently, Win98 is not to be the end of
       that line.) The understanding we got was that the limitations
       related to Unicode in the Win9x line will continue, though MS
       is getting a lot of pressure from developers to amend that. As
       for UI controls, I'm pretty sure that they're working to
       improve things. From what I've seen, MS is thoroughly committed
       to Unicode at this point, though they may yet have reasons why
       they are moving more slowly in Win9x than many of us wished.
