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?
