Message 2: IPA software

Subject: IPA software
Colleagues,
 I have been five years now on my ms-dos machine and have not solved the
problem of producing phonetic symbols as I would like them. I have been told
that on the Apple system there is a product called "Mac the Linguist" which
would permit me to do what I would like. Does any one know of software that
could produce and adequate result on ms-dos? I am considering acquiring a
machine for use at home and I would rather not have to change systems, but I
will if I must.
 Many thanks,
 E. Dean Detrich

Message 3: business prectices around the world

I'm looking for references to any published information, or anecdotal
information, regarding business practices for cultures around
the world. For example, I have heard that it is very offensive to chew
gum while at work in Japan.
There doesn't seem to be a lot of information about this sort
of thing. I suppose that is because it is difficult to know what
is different about your culture without examining other cultures
for comparison.
Any information you might have will be considered useful.
Thanks in advance
