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.
