I have Win98 with RichEdit3.0 patch: it permits me to use Unicode in WordPad.
But it's necessary to know the Unicode numbers!!!

I use two versions of NJStar: one for Chinese, and one for Japanese. The NJS
offers something for all CJK langs (NJS Communicator, IIRC), but it looks buggy.
At least it spoils my Cyrillics.

Hmm. That may work.
Anyway, it looks like it's easier to stick to one style (Simpl.Ch., Trad.Ch. or
Jap.) If I have time, I'll try the first one.
