I see Mac OS 10.6 has a new Chinese character input via the trackpad. This looks really cool, but I can't find a detailed description of it, so I'm not sure if I can use it.
Can I use it to enter kanji? I know nothing about Chinese, apart from hearing that kanji uses Chinese characters. But Apple says nothing about kanji or Japanese. Are the characters identical across languages? Is there anything I'll be missing?
Can I use it to enter kana, too?
Can I use it on my Macbook? It's a 2GHz Core2Duo, so it's a couple years old, and probably doesn't have the newest trackpad.
