Tom Abbott <> and Glenn Tiffert <> tell us that the current versions of the Japanese and Chinese Language Kits don't work with System 7.5, and that users of those script systems will reportedly have to wait for version 1.1.1, due out at the end of the year. However, Glenn claimed that the conflict may only lie with QuickDraw GX, so if you don't use QuickDraw GX, the Japanese and Chinese Language Kits may still work. In contrast, Tom's source implied that even trying to load the Japanese Language Kit could cause troubles. Be forewarned. [ACE]
