[sword-devel] win32 beta V

Good day,

Today, I had the chance to try Sword beta V and Thai modules with Win XP. We
had to go into control panel setup - it has different places where the
language can be selected. It looks like three possible layers where the
language can be specified (or four even).

Anyways, we chose Thai for non-Unicode applications and as the default
start-up language. Sword then displayed the book names in the drop-down box
correctly. However in the personal commentary, the Thai book name was not
displayed correctly (upper ANSI characters instead).

I don't know how it is possible to properly display International languages
in a program as it moves across different Windows platforms. It is extremely
difficult without having multiple versions for different OS's. (Thanks MS.)
