Perhaps this is beyond what you are allowed to comment on according to your
policy on talking about vendors' products, but I have a computer coming to
me in the mail with Windows ME and Office 2000 and after looking at site
after site after site, I cannot get a definitive answer whether I will be
able to use unicode to read and write Korean/hangul within this English
Windows environment.
I read some great literature around a year ago on Unicode and Windows 2000,
recommending when one should get 1) the foreign language version (when more
foreign language apps are running, or 2) the Unicode-enabled English
language version (when foreign font capability is all that was needed). But
I can find no such literature on Windows ME.
Whatever you do, please ignore my email rather than send me back to the
Windows ME web site. :-)
With great thanks in advance from Seoul, Syd
