Hi Mark -
This is encouraging. Do you type down the page in Japanese, or is it left
I notice you mention Chinese characters, versus Japanese characters. You
must forgive my ignorance...are they the same thing? I thought the
characters were different (smile).
But no matter...I can send you a few SW symbols through email as an
attached file, and then you can try to paste them in and see what happens.
Would you like me to do this?
I know you own the SignWriter Computer Program for MS-DOS, and technically
you could also get the symbols from there, but I will be glad to help.
This experiment will be valuable!
Meanwhile, believe it or not, I purchased a Macintosh program for typing
Japanese awhile back, and because of time, I never got a chance to play
with it - but I think this is something to look into.
Thanks for the idea!
