    Since I can enter Japanese and various roman characters through two Japanese input methods, I would say that iWork does support Unicode.

    I've entered both simplified and traditional Chinese characters in Pages, using various fonts. I haven't tried to open any one else's Chinese docs, but since the imput is problem-free, I assume Unicode would not be a problem.

    Nisus is also great for Asian imput...as is Apple Works.

    thanks for the responses...


    Solaafa...i appreciate your kind offer...but i'm pretty sure i've got my answer-i think iwork is unicode enabled...you can learn about unicode here: <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unicode> it is definitely something worth learning about...especially if you're ever going to have to deal with different languages

    appleworks, though, does *not* support unicode (one of its many achilles heels!)
