Description naoyuki 2004-06-28 09:45:55 UTC
In Japan, Yen mark (\u00A5) is used for the represantation for backspack
code(\u005c) even in these Unicode days especially on PC. This is due to the
fact of jisx0201 (variant of ASCII - iso646 complient and SJIS is based on)
defines the code 0x5c as Yen mark and it's used for long time. But of course
ASCII or Unicode define 0x5c as backslash and all of Latin fonts map 0x5c to
backslash glyph. 
So Japanese MS Word has option in Options->Compatibility section for it.

               [X] convert backslash to Yen mark

Writer also should have this option for the convenience for Japanese users.
This option is not for code conversion, but just display/print Yen mark for the
code 0x5c. So the data itself should remain 0x5c if this option is active.
(Excel/PowerPoint has no such option, though)

FT: Set to OfficeLater. Note: This is also a good feature for Korean marker (Won
and \ are the same)
