Japanese Partner NT v3.0

for Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP (JPNT3)


Unique Functions  -  Major  Features  -  System Requirements

Unique Functions

Support both Unicode and ANSI Applications

  • Input in Unicode mode for Unicode applications. Applications such as Microsoft Office 97/2000/XP Suite, Notepad, and several others are Unicode conformant. An application is Unicode conformant if it processes each character in double byte and it recognizes fonts that are structured by Unicode TrueType font definition. Many new versions of applications will be Unicode compatible.
  • Supports Japanese EUC(JIS) and SJIS code standards. Unicode input mode is not available for regular ANSI (Non-Unicode) applications because they have not been modified to accommodate Unicode. However, JPNT30 has provided backward compatibility so that almost all applications can be processed in JIS and SJIS code modes.
  • Unicode and non-Unicode fonts. Fonts are provided in both Unicode and non-Unicode formats. The non-Unicode font facename begins with Jpn such as Jpn Mincho S TT. They are suitable for ANSI applications. The Unicode font facename begins with TSC such as TSC JpnMincho S TT. They are to be used in Unicode applications.

Automatic Selection of Internal Code

  • User no longer needs to select internal code for Japanese input. User starts an input session by confirming his or her Language Preference. A button on the Japanese Partner Control Center displays the status of EUC(JIS) or SJIS Japanese preference. JPNT3 automatically select the appropriate display and input code mode based on language preference's selection and the current application type. The user may leave the "Input Code Using" feature at default ("Auto Select").
  • Overriding system selected internal code. User can force the input code of a specific type differ from the auto choice offered. The system lists the type of internal codes that are logically available to the user based on the preference of using Japanese language. Forcing Unicode is not advisable.

Enhanced Single Cursor Word Processing

Single cursor word processing means cursor movements on any character work the same way as English characters. That is, the cursor will no longer walk into a character because of its double-byte and non-split nature. This is a great convenience to our users. Single cursor word processing may be enabled from either one of the following cases:

  • When a character is processed in Unicode mode. Under Unicode standard, all language character sets are defined in double byte so the processing of each Unicode character is by nature "Single Cursor".
  • When JPNT3 is capable of controlling the cursor in non-Unicode mode. For applications that are not Unicode compatible, each Japanese character normally would require double cursor movements. However, we have implemented a special coding scheme, which recognizes certain programming classes, and reduce the double cursor requirement to single cursor. Not all applications can enjoy single cursor processing because some of them employ special programming code that does not communicate with external programs such as the Japanese Partner for NT.

Major Features

Software Compatibility

  • Works with most natural language versions of Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP.
  • Supports all Windows NT functions and applications such as MS Office 97/2000/XP. Supports both Unicode and non-Unicode(ANSI) applications.
  • Japanese characters documents made by JPNT from various localized versions of MS Office97/2000/XP are compatible to each other.
  • Supports MIME, and ISO2022 Internet standards.

Japanese Fonts

Total of 8 Japanese TrueType fonts are included for NT 4.0
Total of 14 fonts are included for Windows 2000/XP.

Utility Programs:

  • Super Code Converter: the only such utility available today! It converts text, RTF file or clipboard content from one internal code to the other. This converter also addresses specific requirements of MS Office 97/2000/XP documents and Unicode considerations.
  • Single Byte Converter: creates a new single-byte TrueType font based on the Japanese character inputted. Mainly used for graphic manipulation and typesetting.
  • Meta Converter: export Japanese characters into the Clipboard or a file in Windows Graphics Standard Meta Format (WMF). Suitable for any graphic tasks.
