Morisaki, Masato, Kawada, Etsuo, Kuribayashi, Hiroshi, Kuwari, Seiji and Narita, Masahiko (1991): XJp System: An Internationalized Language Interface for the X Window System. In: Rhyne, James R. (ed.) Proceedings of the 4th annual ACM symposium on User interface software and technology Hilton Head, South Carolina, United States, 1991, Hilton Head, South Carolina, United States. pp. 185-193. http://www.acm.org/pubs/articles/proceedings/uist/120782/p185-morisaki/p185-morisaki.pdf

This paper discusses the internationalization of the X Window System developed by the MIT X consortium. The main purpose is to enable X Window System Release 4 (X11R4) and earlier versions to support Asian languages, primarily Japanese, Chinese, and Korean. Unlike English and other European-based languages, Asian languages involve ideographic character manipulation. X Window System X11R4 and earlier versions can output such ideograms when the corresponding fonts are provided, but they have no corresponding input feature. Asian language input thus involves more than one keystroke to input a single ideogram, e.g., Japanese-language input uses romaji-kana-kanji conversion. This paper proposes an ideogram input architecture on the X Window System and discusses the interfaces between conversion systems and X application programs. Like the X Window System, our input-conversion feature is oriented to a distributed network environment.
