Multiple language support System
If you'd like to see an example of multi-language support in OS X via OmniWeb, first download the Code2000 unicode font (which contains something like 30,000 characters). Unzip the file, and move the .TTF font into your fonts folder (/Users/username/Library/Fonts).

Launch OmniWeb, and open the font preference panel and select "Code2000" as your font. Now visit Alan Wood's Unicode Sample Pages to see a selection of unicode characters for various languages and purposes ... it's a pretty impressive display!

This tidbit was found on the "Unleash your multilingual Mac" page, written by Tom Gewecke. Visit his site for even more info on multi language support in both OS X and OS 9.

This is a nice tip for for Safari users too, the font fills in many unicode symbols not yet present in Apple's fonts so it will come in handy for viewing those occasional web pages which use them.

For some reason applications won't use characters from this new font until you quit, it must be a unicode thing because adding other fonts generally cause apps to recognise them immediately in Jaguar.
