I am very happy to forward this message from Marco Piovanelli. Marco was
able to move with a nimbleness that is not possible at big companies like
Apple, and make a quick MLTE demo app available. Thank you, Marco!

It doesn't support all of the features of ATSUI (for example, font features,
font variations, and so on) but it lets you try out the Unicode capabilities
of ATSUI and MLTE. And you can use the keyboards that are usually grayed

Subject: MLTE Demo

I was curious about MLTE (aka Textension), the
new Unicode-savvy text engine built in Mac OS 9,
since I first heard of it in 1998, but so far
I haven't been able to find a single application
that uses it.

So yesterday I decided to write one. A very simple
demo, based on recycled WASTE Demo code.

If anyone's interested, I posted it to my web site:

I have forced myself to contradict myself,
in order to avoid conforming to my own taste.
