After combing various Mac/Apple sites, it appears that:
--MacOS 8.6, 9.0, and the upcoming X are all Unicode Enabled.
--MacOS 7.1 up until 8.6 supported double-byte character systems via
--Prior to 7.1 there was some other method for supporting characters.
My questions are:
1) Did Unicode ennoblement replace WorldScript functionality, or is
WorldScript II still in the picture somehow?
2) Does anyone have a source of info. on double-byte handling prior to
3) Is there some common industry handling for backward compatibility when
building Japanese Mac applications now? If there is a need for an
application to work on post 7.1 systems and 9.0 systems, is there a
workaround, or are two versions of the application needed?
Thanks for any clarification that you can provide!
