Remake of OSX's Dictionary

<< < (2/9) > >>

I converted the dictionary to a 7-bit ASCII Scheme expression without backslash.
Then I converted it to a binary format that contains the dictionary, thesaurus and index.
It's half the size of the original.

The versions for Windows and Linux will be able to draw all characters as text.

but it seems that it can't deal well with UTF-16 (2 bytes per char) ...

Is there a plugin for REALbasic which can show the Unicode correctly?

I fragmalyzed REALbasic 5.5.5.
It doesn't use Text Services while this is necessary for Unicode support.
Thus OSX's Dictionary can't be remade with REALbasic 5.5.5.
