    Ted, AppleWorks 6.2.4 does not allow Unicode input, unfortunately. I
    tried writing mult,umesc and romānes,te in TextEdit and saved as .rtf
    in a number of encodings and when AppleWorks imports them it strips
    the Romanian s, and t, out and, oddly, changes the font to Zapf

    You can type Romanian with TextEdit by choosing the U.S. Extended
    keyboard in the keyboard menu (System Preferences > International >
    Input Menu); option-p + s/t gives you the letter with comma below. If
    you have Romanian hardware, you can choose the Romanian keyboard in
    the Input Menu, which has s, on the § key and t, on the \ key. I
    filed a bug with Apple some time ago about the Unicode support in
    AppleWorks, but these things take time sometimes.
