I was at the Typotechnica presentation from Quark, and while it is nice to finally see
them moving on Unicode and OpenType the level of support was less impressive than many had
hoped. The consensus of people I spoke to (mainly type designers and font developers) was
that Quark's Unicode and OpenType support is a straight clone of the level of support in
InDesign CS, right down to the list of OpenType Layout features supported and the new
glyph pallette. It was disappointing to not see a single new idea that wasn't directly
based on what Adobe have already done.
On the Unicode front, you can expect multibyte character encoding support, but not complex
script or bidi layout.
