Han-Yi, I think you and Peter are talking past each other. Perhaps a couple
of examples will clarify things:
If I have a Word document in a LTR script that does not require any complex
layout for typical text, but which is not on your tentative list of
supported keyboards -- say Ogham or Runic -- using a Unicode encoded OT
font that I can install on Mac OS, will Mac Office correctly display this
If I make my own keyboard driver using Apple's new XML-based keyboard
tools, will Mac Office recognise this keyboard and allow me to input
Unicode text using it?
