Handling of non-unicode chars? Jan 21, 2008

Hi Kyju and all,

Tadzio, thanks for the great URL. Very useful!

I guess the crux of the matter here is the handling of non-unicode chars.

This is what wikipedia has to say on the topic:

"The tilded versions of "E", "I", "U", "Y", and "G" are not available in ISO Latin-1 fonts, but can be represented in Unicode (except that tilded "G" is not available as a single precomposed glyph, and must be encoded as a combining tilde plus a plain "G"). In digital environments where those glyphs are not available, the tilde is often postfixed to the base character ("E~", "I~", "U~", "Y~", "G~") or a circumflex is used instead ("Ê", "Î", "Û", "Ŷ", "Ĝ")."

Perhaps the various CAT tools handle these special chars differently?!
I never had a Windows installation in Guarani or a Guarani keyboard to try, but this could be an interesting test project.

Kyju, why don't you try a few tools and experiment, and post back your results?!

I can imagine that you'd get more "real life feedback" if you post this question on the spanish-speaking part of the forum here...
