Can we enable UNICODE on MS Windows 98 based machines ?? For KANNADA to be implemented without any portabilityy problems, UNICODE should be enabled on MS Windows 98.

Microsoft attempted to enable Unicode in MS Windows 98 itself. As a result, all the required fundamental support for Unicode is available in MS Windows 98 itself. As MS fully supports Unicode (All the major players supports Unicode – Sun, Oracle, Adobe, Corel etc) all of their products would support Unicode.

As far as the Govt of Karnataka department users are concerned, it is not possible to upgrade the thousands of PCs running on MS Windows 98. The old users are heavily depending on the font hacking standards of Govt of Karnataka. This hacked standard is not working properly on the Unicode enabled softwares on OS like XP. The newer computers can’t run on older OS like MS Windows 98. The font standard can’t work on the newer applications. Presently, these problems are faced by non-word processing users.

Enabling Unicode on MS Windows 98 based machines is NO childs play. That is the reason why copy cats are not able to produce any enabling software. For Kannada to be implemented without any portability problems, Unicode should be enabled on MS Windows 98. This will enable the users to free exchange of documents.
