The more I look at I18N in VB.NET, the more impressed I am. It has no
language restrictions on variable names etc.

    Protected Sub Form1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As
        Dim ? As String
        Dim font As New System.Drawing.Font("Batang", 10)
        ? = "??"
        TextBox1.Text = ?
    End Sub

Each "?" is an ideograph. It seems to "just work".
