RE: CEE languages

hi Jason

about CE-langs (as far as I know, please correct me if I'm wrong...
especially framers from Central-European countries, who can actually
*read* the texts :-)) .

1. no spelling and hyphenation dictionaries available in FM
2. for index sorting, you'll have to set up this on the reference page. 
3. bookmarks in PDF-files: UnicodeBookmarks from Shlomo might help :-)

And there's always the problem of the "reserved characters" in FM. To
display characters as "t caron" you might set your CE fonts as "nontext"
in maker.ini.

This applies only to Windows (2000 and XP). 

For Estonian and the other Baltic langs you'll need the Baltic font

Hope this helps
