Will Apple be publishing the details of these keyboard layouts, and will
they be free for reproduction on other platforms?
Reason being, I implemented two Cherokee keyboard layouts for SC UniPad
<http://www.unipad.org> in early 2002:
- one supported by the Cherokee Nation of Tahlequah, Oklahoma (this is
now included with the UniPad distribution)
- one listed on the Web site of the Cherokee Tribe of Northeast Alabama
and based on a public-domain font (available as an add-in)
The problem was that neither keyboard had emerged as a clear "standard"
among users of Cherokee (if indeed there are enough users for a standard
to emerge). So I'd be interested in seeing which layouts Apple adopted,
and whether they should be made available for UniPad if they differ from
what it's already got.
