Unicode in Window Title?

One workaround is to set the language of the OS in the International
section of the system preferences. For Russian, you can drag it to the
top of the list. Note this also changes the special menu items - help,
about, quit and maybe another that I can't remember. Another way to do
this is to create a folder in the Resources folder within the Contents
folder within the package titled "Russian.lproj". Then in your
where RussianWord is a word typed in Rev in Russian:
put unidecode("RussianWord","Russian") into tword
set the name of wd "untitled 1" to tword
In my Japanese/Chinese/Korean/English app, I have the user choose a
default language and work with it this way. Try it and let me know if
it works for Russian as well.
