Challenges in publishing with non-Roman scripts

Challenges in publishing with non-Roman scripts
There are a number of challenges in the typesetting of non-Roman scripts. These include problems of interaction between the font and typesetting system, problems of very large character sets, and considerations of typesetting the particular script.

Implementation

Writing System Implementation on the Fly: Extensibility for the Common Man

Sharon Correll

Abstract

Those needing to work with multilingual text, particularly using any kind of complex script, commonly run into two problems: input and output. On the input side, it is often necessary to use keyboarding modules that map sequences of keys to the characters needed for the languages. On the output side, smart font rendering technology may be needed to properly display or print many complex writing systems.

This presentation describes several technologies that can be used to provide extensible writing system implementations in situations where the solutions implemented as part of the operating system are inadequate. Specifically we will focus on Keyman, for keyboard input, and the Graphite system, for complex rendering.
