  While the current version of m17n Squeak doesn't handle the
traditional chinese encoded in big5, it is rather easy to support it.
At least the m17n Squeak already supports simplified chinese.  To

  The Japanese version on the multilingual layer is supposed
to be good enough for serious use in Japanese kids.

  I'm working on the next generation of m17n Squeak, which is more
"Unicode" friendly implementation.  I just finished writing a paper on
the design and implementation of m17n Squeak for a conference called


# For people who are not aware of this conference, this is a
# conference that Alan Kay is attending.

  Once the conference is over, I'll make the paper available on the
web, and the implementation as well hopefully some time soon:-)
