--recommended:
  Several UCS fonts:
    http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/ucs-fonts.html
  Unifont:
    http://www.czyborra.com/unifont/
--recommened literature:
  http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/unicode.html

Installation Process
====================
Linux:

1. configure --prefix=/usr/local
2. make
3. make install

Solaris:

1. configure --prefix=/opt/Misc
2. make
3. make install

FreeBSD:

1. ./configure --prefix=/usr/local
2. gmake
3. gmake install

Windows:

1. run setup.exe
2. install into a directory, like:
   C:\Yudit
   * Good to know: if you dont have setup.exe or you want to move 
     yudit manually to another direcotry you just need mytool to 
     change installdir:
      C:\NewInstallBaseDir\bin\mytool -installdir "C:\NewInstallBaseDir"
3. install ghostview from, for instance, http://www.ghostgum.com.au/
   into, like:
   C:\Ghostgum
4. If you install ghostview into any other directory, modify
      %HOME%\.yudit\yudit.properties
   and
      C:\Yudit\config\yudit.properties
   * Note: there is an editor that can edit unix files called yudit :)
      yudit C:/Yudit/config/yudit.properties
   and set yudit.default.preview.command to the command to execute:
      yudit.default.preview.command="C:/Ghostgum/gsview/gsview32.exe"

How to make an rpm package form Yudit sources
=============================================
1. rpm -tb yudit-2.5.4.tar.gz
  This will tell you where to put the compresed source code.Put it there.
  Most likely:
  Suse: /usr/src/packages/SOURCES/yudit-2.5.4.tar.gz
  or
  Redhat: /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/yudit-2.5.4.tar.gz
2. rpm -i [binary rpm]

Does the GUI speak my language?
==============================
Yudit menus can be displayed in several langauges.

In  ~/.yudit/yudit.properties file you can specify:

    yudit.default.language=langauge_code

The following languages are supported:

Tag Country/Language      Translated and contributed by

uk  Ukrainian             Solotskyy Mykola <salo@tokyo.email.ne.jp>
yi  Israel/Yiddish        Raphael Finkel <raphael@cs.uky.edu>

If you specify 

    yudit.default.language=default

The environment variable LANG will be used to determine the 
language. You this options sparingly - it is not garanteed that
the font is available.

If your langauge does not appear properly, you might need to
change 
 yudit.default.font=default
to
 yudit.default.font=MyVirtualFont

The default font is internally defined as:
 "-*-*-medium-r-normal--16-*-*-*-c-*-iso8859-1,"
 "-*-*-*-*-*--16-*-*-*-c-*-iso8859-1,"
 "cyberbit.ttf,code2000.ttf,arial.ttf,yudit.ttf:cp-1250"

How to translate yudit messages to my language
==============================================

1. cd gui
2. mkdir -p locale/country_and_variant/LC_MESSAGES/
3. make messages
4. yudit -e utf-8 locale/country_and_variant/LC_MESSAGES/messages.po
5. make messages
6. make install
7. mail -s locale/country_and_variant \
     gsinai@yudit.org < locale/country_and_variant/LC_MESSAGES/messages.po
8. add 
    yudit.default.language=country_and_variant
   to ~/.yudit/yudit.properties
   you may wan to add:
    yudit.default.font=yourfont
    yudit.default.fontsize=yourfontsize
  A good result can be achieved if you download and install the 

   http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/download/ucs-fonts.tar.gz

  - mkdir x11fonts   (or re-use .yudit/fonts)
  - cd x11fonts
  - wget http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/download/ucs-fonts.tar.gz
  - tar xfz ucs-fonts.tar.gz
  - xset fp+ ~/x11fonts 
  - (optional) put the line above into ~/.Xinitrc
  - change ~/.yudit/yudit.properties

         yudit.default.font=Misc
         yudit.default.fontsze=15

9. Sometimes you may have a translation but it does not appear.
  Possible and not obvious reasons:
  - if the original message has \n at the end the translation should
    have it too.
  - if you see the fuzzy keyword in a comment preceeding the message
    it wont be included. Remove the fuzzy comment.
   
     
Japanese Input
==============
If you have built the Motif version you can also use Kinput2 to input Japanese.

If you want to use free packages and you have an English environment
you need to do the following:

o Get a conversion server, 'canna' from X11 contrib directory.
  This server can be built in Linux. It is usually started when the machine
  boots and keeps running. Make sure it uses its own wide text library.
  No Japanese environment is needed.

o Get a 'kinput2' X front-end for X11 from the same place you got canna.
  If you don not have Japanese environment, make sure it links with libcanna16.
  Kinput is started after X in .xinitrc and it provides the input windows
  for the applications.

  The current version of kinput2 has a bug - it thinks that long is 32 bit,
  which is true on a pentium machine. On an alpha machine you should make
  sure you have a version number set to less than 2.02 in your .yuditrc so
  that yudit knows that it should deal with a buggy kinput2. If you have a
  value of zero, yudit tries to determine the version number itself.

Hangul Input
============
Yudit comes with kmap files for Roman transliteration, 2-set and 3-set
keyboards. I expect yudit to improve on this area.

Adding New Mappings
===================
Please read the man page for mytool. FAQ.TXT also has some information.
Note that some indic scripts can come as clustering kmaps (type=clkmap).
For clues on how to create an Handwriting input please read the
mytool/hwd/hiragana.hwd utf-8 encoded file, or the same file in
/usr/share/yudit/data/hiragana.hwd.
