Build ID: FizzillaCFM 2001-04-18 Mac OS X (currently) comes with three kinds of keyboard layouts: Roman, Japanese and Unicode. The layouts categorized as Unicode layouts can't be used with Mozilla. Since Mozilla already supports Unicode internally, it would be good to make Mozilla compatible with the Unicode services provided by the OS.
Mac folks correct me if I'm wrong here, I don't think this is an editor issue. The editor has no clue what keyboard is being used, all it gets are events from the xptoolkit.
kin is right. all hail kin!
Over to XP Toolkit.
There are more than one unicode keyboard. Which keyboard this bug is asking for mozilla support? I found one document, http://developer.apple.com/techpubs/macos8/pdf/SupportingUnicodeInput.pdf Any other information about unicode keyboard?
Reassign to ftang.
I tend to think this bug and bug 23363 are the same, at least it's about the same issue.
this bug is OS X specific; I don't think it's really a duplicate but I defer to Frank or Naoki.
remove future. Reconsider for 1.0
Support Unicode keyboard require change the input method code to use Unicode also. We make this into two stages- 23363 for moving the Input Method code by using unicode on TSM 1.5 and this bug focus on support the keyboard by adding kUnicodeNotFromInputMethod handler. We need to solve 23363 first.
the latest patch in 23363 include the fix for keyboard
ftang, are you planning on landing this for 0.9.4?
no, move to 0.9.5
move to m0.9.6
move around dependency. We already have the patch in 23363 which also address this issue. so now I mark this depend on 23363.
I can enable the unicode keyboard layout on recent trunk build. Mark as verified.
