JIS2004 compliance for free with custom UI?

  • According to the latest public web page for Leopard:

    <http://www.apple.com/macosx/features/300.html#international>

    it states...

    "Leopard is fully compliant with the JIS2004 standard, as UI elements in all applications are rendered using JIS2004 characters by default."

    While my custom UI app is not localized to anything other than US English, it is Unicode-savvy in that student names and other types of user-input can be in any language to include Japanese.  For text rendering, I always use the standard Cocoa text system (mostly drawing of NSAttributedString instances)  All data input also uses that standard Aqua text field (the one UI element I chose not to subclass).  So, would my app therefore also benefit from such JIS2004 compliance when rendering Japanese text?  Would I need to do any testing on my part?

    Thanks,

  • Ricky,

    As complaint to our mantra "It just works," you don't have to do
    anything to take advantage of the JIS2004 compliant rendering 8-).

    Note that the existing user documents still use pre-JIS2004 character
    shape.

    Thanks, Aki, that's what I was hoping for :)
