> Dear Sir/Madam,
> I am writing on behalf of a global software company called
> Rebus iS. Rebus iS has developed an underwriting package that
> has been very successful in Europeon markets.
> The application runs on an AS400 device but was developed
> primarily for English speaking countries.
> We are now looking to expand the market for this product into
> countries such as China. To achieve this I have been informed
> we need to enable our application for Double Byte Character
> Set (DBCS).
> This confuses me when I read of UNICODE. If the AS400
> supports UNICODE, and assuming DBCS & UNICODE are mutually
> exclusive, would it not make more sense to enable for UNICODE
> only from the outset?
> I would be grateful for your assistance in this matter.
> Kind Regards
