Denver, CO. - 30 November 2004
Quark's Kamar Aulakh talks to The International Journal
of Newspaper Technology about an upcoming version of Quark XPress.
7.0 is totally Unicode compliant. It supports all OpenType fonts, multiple languages, it’s easier for us to do all these things when you’re Unicode compliant. These are things that our customer doesn’t see ... but underneath, we’ve done all this work.
In the interview the scope of OpenType and Unicode support is not discussed, so it's not clear if XPress' support for these technologies involves anything more than access to individualy mapped charatcers, or if support for complex script shaping or access to OpenType Layout features is supported too.
