Created due to a lack of any Asian Language support,  and I relocated from New
Zealand to Japan.
This is being staged out and modularized so that instead of multiple
implimentations for each language,
there is a central stack arrangement for Input in addition to materials for

Keymap support alone is not enough (Japanese keyboards start with a basic layout
for Japanese),
  as for Japanese there is no less than 3 sets of glyphs used in addition to
English glyphs.

Due to the fact that Japanese is a "side by side" language display choice with
an immediate use of
 additional language support,  I have had to write this Language support using
UTF-8 encoding for all
 strings in the primary japanese.language driver,  additional encodings are to
be provided from drivers
 that locale will recognise for "charset"(character set) encodings.

Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji Translations will occur based on user selection of
mode and whether to
 actively translate or not.

The presented materials here is still "incomplete" with regards to IME
 despite this state it should be functional without interference with normal

Fonts will need to be the full unicode enabled OpenType/TrueType/PostScript

Original sources will always be made available where practical for anyone to add
additional IME plugin
 support to any language driver beyond the base Locale.Library driver
