ClarisWorks 4.0 & Kanji

ClarisWorks 4.0 & Kanji — Dan Miller <[email protected]> of ZiffNet/Mac wrote in regard to problems displaying Kanji text in ClarisWorks 4.0 reported in TidBITS-284, saying that he had experienced no trouble using ClarisWorks 4.0 with version 1.2 of the Japanese Language Kit (although it may well have problems with earlier versions of the JLK). Dan Kogai <[email protected]> – who reported the original problem – adds that on further investigation, the troubles he experienced seem related to FontPatchin’, a common freeware Control Panel that lets applications using Roman fonts by default show Kanji correctly. FontPatchin’ also comes with an extension called UnderLineEnabler, which allows underlining text in KanjiTalk – something critical for using the World Wide Web. Dan Kogai adds, however, that the HTML translator in ClarisWorks still had problems using Kanji. [GD]
