  • Two Phonetic Scripts: Vietnamese and Korean

    MurrayS3
    27 Jan 2015 | 2:16 pm
    I just visited two very interesting countries, Vietnam and Korea. Being actively involved in writing software (mostly RichEdit) for editing the world’s scripts, I was naturally fascinated to see Vietnamese and Korean text displayed in profusion. The Vietnamese and Korean scripts were designed with a common purpose in mind: enable the languages to be read and written easily by all members of their respective countries. Earlier on, people tried to write Vietnamese and Korean by customizing the Chinese script. But while the Chinese script is well suited to Chinese languages, it’s…
  • Ruby Text Objects

    MurrayS3
    27 Dec 2014 | 6:33 pm
    Chinese characters are used to represent syllables and words in a number of East Asian languages. In each language, the characters are pronounced differently and their meanings may differ as well. To help clarify the pronunciation and/or semantics, “ruby text” can be used. In vertical text layout, ruby text is positioned vertically to the right of the base text that it annotates, while in horizontal text, the ruby text is normally placed above the base text. For example, the word Japanese,日本語, can be annotated as where the “ruby text” にほんご is the hiragana…
  • Math Symbol Hierarchy

    MurrayS3
    26 Nov 2014 | 9:27 am
    The Unicode Standard 7.0 has 2311 math symbols not including the ASCII letters and the standard combining marks like tilde, which are also used in math zones. Such a large number of symbols can be confusing if not intimidating to people who don’t use mathematics professionally. Even those who use math a lot don’t use most of the advanced symbols. The reason so many symbols are in Unicode is to fulfill the promise that all math symbols in modern print be defined, thereby allowing the Unicode math symbol set to be used as a basis for technical publications. This is a very worthy…

    This post involves an old passion of mine, computerizing homes. First some background. I spent the academic year 1975-76 on sabbatical at the Max Planck Institute for Solid-State Physics and the University of Stuttgart in Stuttgart, Germany researching nonlinear laser spectroscopy theory, generally of atomic media. But the Max Planck Institute aroused my curiosity about solid-state media and particularly about semiconductor media. During this time I learned of the Intel 8080 microprocessor which seemed incredibly interesting to a computer nut. So after returning to the University of Arizona…
  • Entering Unicode Characters

    MurrayS3
    30 Sep 2014 | 3:24 pm
    As noted in the post Symbols and Emoji we have the ability to input characters in much more powerful ways than possible before the advent of modern computers and smart phones. We can insert symbols chosen from large galleries (Character Map, Office Insert Symbol Dialog, Office math ribbon, soft keyboards) to represent words and ideas. We can use Input Method Editors (IMEs) to enter any East Asian character and, for that matter as we see below, any Unicode character. In Microsoft Office applications, we can use the math linear format to enter arbitrary built-up mathematical expressions. We can…

    24 Jan 2015 | 9:01 am
    Do you get an error if you use \* MERGEFORMAT and insert using CTRL+F9? Here’s the problem: If you use the Ribbon to insert a field, it works fine. BUT if you use CTRL+F9 to insert the brackets and then type the field code it displays the following error message: “Error!

    2 Jan 2015 | 2:30 am
    Microsoft Word's Table of Authorities feature isn't exactly known for its user-friendliness. Nobody's ever said the word "automagically" about it. And more than one enterprising software vendor has found a lucrative niche making an easier-to-use interface for TOAs. I've had to use this feature myself on several occasions recently, and I've rediscovered seven ways you can easily (and thoroughly) screw up a Table of Authorities.

Y'all recycle so much old material from briefs and other documents, it puts Ed Begley, Jr. to shame. Some of the problems with all that cutting and pasting are pretty obvious: another client's name being left in (oops) or funky formatting that doesn't match the new document. But others aren't.

    How to make a sales presentation? Businesses and individuals are pitched all-year-long by folks who just have one goal: close the sale, no matter what. To do that, they walk in, ask stupid questions, while trying to sell themselves. They make a sales presentation and extensively use the world “we” to talk about their company, products and so on. It’s often about them, and rarely about us. What happens next is predictable: we – the clients – politely say “we’ll be in touch”, run away, and never come back. Are you wondering why?
