TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
IIRC, you need to have the double-byte language encodings installed. There
should be something on the Microsoft site that you can download if you have
Windows. The latest edition of MacOS (8.6 & 9) have this option on the
installation CD, but you have to specifically choose to install it. I think
Win98 is the same--the option is there on the CD, but you have to choose it
as a custom install option.
I hope this is enough info to get you pointed in the right direction! Good
