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...


I have iWork 05, i dont know what unicode is but if you could explan it to me and give me a link or whatever i need to test it i would do that asap and respond to you.
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!)
