Korean support for KDE2

Well, this is pretty cool. Bumchul Kim has updated his webpage with patches and details on what's needed to make KDE CVS and Qt 2.2.0 work well with the Korean charset. Includes cool screenshots and a patch for an OnTheSpot implementation in Qt. The good news is that a lot of the KDE patches have already made it to CVS.

This looks wonderful :-)
I hope KDE2 will become a success in Korea.

A minor correction: BIG5 encoding is not for Korean but for Traditional Chinese(used in Taiwan and Hong Kong)

Does KDE2 work well with Chinese characters? if not I can probably add chinese support when I get some free time later.

Hmmm, thanks. I wasn't so sure of that, though I thought I'd seen it called that way somewhere. I'll drop the "Big 5" from the article.

I'm not sure about Chinese characters. There is a simplified Chinese team listed at http://i18n.kde.org/.

I've been waiting for this, I have a lot of
Korean customers who are frustrated with not
being able to type/read Korean on their computers.

Great work.
