I didn't see any entries for title or tooltip. I've logged two bugs:
This creates a dilemma for me. I need to localize an application in
Russian and eventually Chinese and Japanese. Tooltips I could work
around but not having window titles displayed in the localized
language is a problem for this app.
So now I am looking for advice from anyone working with Revolution
and Russian. I have never had to deal with anything but default
fonts for English, French, German, etc. so I am not exactly sure how
to proceed. If I can't use Unicode, do I just need to set the stack
textFont to a standard font that will be installed on Russian systems
and populate the fields with text that has the Cyrillic ISO 8859-5 or
Russian KOI8-R encoding?
Anybody have any pointers?
