Midas LSX 5.53 - improved support for Asian characters and tabbed tables

Today, we released Midas LSX 5.53, which while a minor point release has some major enhancements for support of Asian and other multibyte character sets in attachments and text. While we have supported Japanese, Vietnamese, Thai, Chinese and Korean attachment names, the process for getting them to work was cumbersome and required that all attachment names used the same font, which was not ideal. Now, there is improved automatic font recognition, so file attachments are both legible and appropriately size even if you have a mix of Japanese and Cyrillic, or Vietnamese and Korean and English.

While you might not think of your rich text having tabbed tables, your forms often will. Most customers who export content to SharePoint or other systems, or simply for archival purposes, want to have a working snapshot of the rendered form, and that means tabbed tables and other complex form elements. To that end, we fixed a bug and enhanced the specialized handling of tabbed tables with Javascript. Simply setting TabbedTablesInCSS='yes' will generate the CSS and Javascript code necessary to make even nested tabbed tables work the way they do in Notes.
