I have joined the list for a long time. I read about
Big5/Unicode/UTF/... Chinese Standard discussions and did a few studies on
these issues. I am no Chinese Linux hacker and am still confused. IS
UNICODE THE CONSENSUS NOW?
maybe, maybe not :-)
the wide character in glibc is unicode
the multibyte character at zh_TW locale is still Big5
( I _hope_ we could shift to UTF-8 as soon as possible )
And another thing, there existed problems about chinese support
IBM's Softwares porting to Linux for a long time. Always Chinese Font
problem. It seems there is no STANDARD/DEFAULT Chinese fonts on Linux.
People are free to take their favorites. However, sometimes it causes
problems for application developers for they can't map default font to
SYSTEM FONTS(just like 細明體 in Windows). Would anyone advise on this
problem? Maybe we should try to make that font standard and let application
developers, like IBM to follow?
我曾經私下請 cwhuang & mingche 能討論出一個共用的字型名,
不知其他 distro 的意見 ?
這是小事啦 不過有個 default name 比較方便嘛 :-)
