I don't know, Bill, but that is a good point. I am on a Mac and awhile back
I purchased the Japanese version of the Mac operating system, and then I
never got time to install it and experiment with it. I was able to purchase
it in the USA, which I think is pretty neat. The reason I purchased it was
for this very point - that maybe existing software can give us an
"increased number of characters", other than the standard 255 slots
generally used in western computers.

However, if the operating system is a requirement, to use Japanese
Microsoft Word, then that will be quite a hassle for people outside of
Japan - so I am glad you mentioned this. But it will be very useful for
people inside Japan :-)
