Why No Jabberwocky Sets in QuarkXPress 8?

Have you wondered why Quark dropped the Jabberwocky Sets feature from QuarkXPress 8?

It turns out that because the Jabberwocky feature was added a long time before operating systems began to understand Unicode fonts, it was not Unicode-compliant. Since QuarkXPress 8 relies heavily on Unicode, the Jabberwocky Sets feature had to go.

Now you know.

(More info: in QuarkXPress 7 and earlier, Jabberwocky Sets were different languages that Quark could use to fill placeholder text. My favorite was Klingon. The Jabberwocky feature is still available in QuarkXPress 8 and higher, but only in fake Latin. Just choose Jabber from the Utilities menu)
