Thoughtful, detailed coverage of everything Apple for 34 years
and the TidBITS Content Network for Apple professionals


Oops. Blew it again. Sorry. Charlie Mingo chastised us about the international localization issue Jean-Philippe brought up in TidBITS-086. We said that the relevant chapter was in Inside Macintosh IV, whereas in fact that chapter in Inside Mac IV is on "The Binary-Decimal Conversion Package." However, we meant to say that you should look in Inside Mac VI. Didn’t we mention that a serious localization problem is that Roman numerals are handled differently in France? 🙂 Charlie goes on to add, helpfully, that "Volume V, Chapter 1 also has a discussion of localization." Of course, if we had a full set of Inside Mac, I would have checked, but it’s hard to justify the expense when I’m not a programmer. Thanks, Charlie, for setting us straight on this.
