Description Ken Frank 2007-04-23 20:03:47 UTC
see attached gif.

using multibyte in name of a variable or other identifier, that name is
marked as an error.  Jan Jancura mentioned we dont't support this now
but to file an issue.

Also, using esaped ascsii for such is not supported either.

But mutlibyte can be used in comments and in strings.

am in ja locale when doing the steps and using multibyte valid and default
for that locale.
Comment 3 Jan Jancura 2007-04-27 15:10:24 UTC
We will look at it. Thanks.
Comment 4 Ken Frank 2007-10-03 18:06:30 UTC
pleas clarify about this issue - since it relates to use of mbyte, it should
be a p2 kind of issue and am marking it so until hear more about it; but if its a limitation of javascript itself then
we can release note it; please lower priority if that is the case.

Comment 5 Jan Jancura 2007-10-04 10:32:57 UTC
Using multibyte is supported in ECMA script definition, but it is not supported in browsers, as far as I know.
Current version of Schliemann engine does not support this feature too - RFE.
Comment 6 Ken Frank 2008-01-15 22:12:14 UTC
can anything on this be done for nb6.1 

is there some issue that can be filed on schelieman engine ? if so what
category to use ?

Comment 7 Ken Frank 2008-04-14 22:32:08 UTC
is it still not possible to implement this for javascript ?

or is it that there is limitation of browsers so that it can't/should
not be done in any case ?
