Subject: Date Controls


We are planning for a date control which would show up dates/time in any
chracter. Now, how do we find out how many characters does a date in each
language take up?
For eg: To display AM in Arabic/japanese how many bytes are required?
similarly for everything else.

I'm sure there must be some standard to this. Or is it enough if I make it
Unicode compliant and it will take care of the problem?
