Some nicode range for Latin Extended-A and B characters are not displayed in Mac. Go to Latin Extended-A range http://warp/u/ftang/utf8test/ncr.cgi?r=0x0&c=0x1 Many characters are not displayed. Go to Latin Extended-B range http://warp/u/ftang/utf8test/ncr.cgi?r=0x0&c=0x2 Many characters are not displayed. Tested 11-18-08 Mac build.
Specifically, which characters? Should this be marked [BETA] in the summary?
In http://warp/u/ftang/utf8test/ncr.cgi?r=0x0&c=0x1 0102, 0103,0108, 0109, 010A, 010B, 0110, 0104, 0105, 010C,010D, 010E, 010F, 0120, 0121, 0124, 0125, 0128, 0129, 012C,012D, 0130, 0134, 0135, 014E, 014F, 015C, 015D, 015E, 015F, 0162, 0163, 0168, 0169, 016C, 016D, 0174, 0175, 0176, 0177, cannot be seen. after 0180, only 0192, 01CE, 01D0, 01D2, 01D4, 01D6, 01D8, 01DA, 01DC can be seen. Rest of the characters from 0180 are displayed as <?>.

Teruko says this is a Beta stopper, so moved from M16 to M13.
Have the fix for Latin Extend A (U+0100-U+017F) except U+012C, U+012D and U+017F due to the way Apple make their font. The fix use ATSUI in a limited way. Do not have fix for Latin Extended B or IPA range. But it should be treat as lower priority...
I check in the fix for the Latin Extend A part. (as the limitation stated above). Since the remaining part is low priority, move it to M20.
Due to Beta indication in Summary, putting beta1 into keyword field.
Put on PDT- per ftang comments.
FYI, these are the descriptive names for the Latin Extend A characters mentioned earlier: U+012C: LATIN CAPITAL LETTER I WITH BREVE U+012D: LATIN SMALL LETTER I WITH BREVE U+017F: LATIN SMALL LETTER LONG S We could choose to tranliterate these to a similar ASCII glyph.
move to future
gary no longer work for us. reassing to ftang
We already did some transliteration now. Most of the Latin characters in this range which could easily find a ASCII as base character are transliterate. I don't think the rest of the characters are worth for us to fix for nsbeta1. Keep this as Futre. Mark it P5. nsbeta1- for this bug.

Mark as verified with this old problem cause the extension A characters are displayed fine. See comment #12 for extension B characters displayed problem.
