Hi Ron,

Sorry, but i cannot help you with unicode menus, never used them...

But i found something else related to "auto-localized" menus/-items :-)

The first thing i do after installing a new version of RR is to create 
EMPTY folder "German.lproj" into "Revolution.app/Contents/Resources/"...

And this is what i does:

The menu "Help" appears in german -> "Hilfe"!

In the application menu i have the items "Preferences" and "Quit 
Revolution" in
german -> "Voreinstellungen" and "Revolution beenden"

This means you can leave these menus/items in ENGLISH!

Does also work in a standalone, of course, since the standalonbuilder 
copies ALL
resources to the new app...

This trick may probably work with any language supported by OS X...
Tested with dutch, french and italian... And english obviously ;-)

Won't help you very much, but this way you may have 3 localization 
problems less :-)

> Thanks for your help,
> Ron
