I’m trying to help with a project (probably using Applescript) to convert WordPerfect Mac files created under OS7-9 that contain Japanese/Chinese/Korean fonts (double-byte WorldScript II fonts) into text usable under OS X. Is there any documentation that matches the symbols in these fonts with the corresponding unicode symbols?
OS X obviously has these tables built-in, because, if you have a PowerPC Mac running OS X and Classic, you can copy the text of a file with Japanese characters from a Classic application and paste it into an OS X application. But there’s no way to do the same thing under OS X unless you have an application that runs under Classic AND OS X - and WordPerfect doesn’t.
Any pointers to documentation about these fonts would be very welcome. Thanks.
