....I can see anything in there about enabling multibyte characters (and
at least I know what multibyte is these days). I can see the bits about
the encodings and fonts, but I assumed with correct encoding and font
it would "just work" ? I already have UTF8 set - can I not just set
an asian font to see the characters ?

This is where the font thing gets complicated I think - I want to have
a text field into which people can type the Japanese text, followed by
the english translation in brackets on the sameline (in thesame NSString).
Now I am quite happpy that the string can holdboth types of characters, and
it displays properly on a webpage - but I am not sure that there is any way
to get it to work properly in the text field so it can be edited ?

thanks for the help,
