This chapter introduces some of the more common aspects of designing a multi?lingual program. You need to be aware of how dates, time, numbers, and calendars are affected by region. Of course, the one part of the program that may be as big as the program itself is the Help system. These elements are quite often left out of an internationalization project and if so could cause quite a bit of animosity to your program. The code for the programs in this chapter, as in the whole book, can be downloaded from the Apress web site at The final section of this chapter introduces you to the Unicode standard, what it is, and how you may already be using it.
