    Thank you for the information.

    I do not stand in NDA with Apple and the information I wrote about
    possible Georgian typeface support on upcoming OS X release was based
    on the information speculating among Georgian users.

    I am sorry to hear this may not be true.

    I do hope OS X will improve Georgian language support though in terms
    of adding Georgian keyboard layouts and typeface, as OS X is the only
    major operating system not supporting Georgian.

    This is strange. Have you tried changing the font of the final
    document to Sylfaen? I do think the right hand space you mention is
    due to the spacing issues with Arial Unicode MS typeface and can be
    resolved in the text is applied proper Georgian unicode typeface like
    Sylfaen or BPG Glaho.

    I am afraid I was not able to receive the attachment, either because
    the mailing list software strips attachments, or due to my mail
    client. Please kindly send it directly to my mail address and I will
    take a look at it.
