4D Updates WebSTAR 4.5 for Mac OS 9 -- Kudos to 4D for releasing WebSTAR Server Suite 4.5 for Mac OS 9 users today. Despite focusing attention on the Mac OS X-compatible WebSTAR V (which still lacks the email server component of WebSTAR 4.5), 4D took the time to decarbonize the Web server in WebSTAR 4.5 to improve performance and eliminate memory leaks. Also new are an enhanced File Upload plug-in that supports long file names and a new version of the WebSTAR Admin application. The update is free to all WebSTAR 4.x users and is available as a 49 MB download. [ACE]
Is it a Unicode Font?
To determine if your font is Unicode-compliant, with all its characters coded and mapped correctly, choose the Font in any program (or in Font Book, set the preview area to Custom (Preview > Custom), and type Option-Shift-2.
If you get a euro character (a sort of uppercase C with two horizontal lines through its midsection), it's 99.9 percent certain the font is Unicode-compliant. If you get a graphic character that's gray rounded-rectangle frame with a euro character inside it, the font is definitely not Unicode-compliant. (The fact that the image has a euro sign in it is only coincidental: it's the image used for any missing currency sign.)
This assumes that you're using U.S. input keyboard, which is a little ironic when the euro symbol is the test. With the British keyboard, for instance, Option-2 produces the euro symbol if it's part of the font.
