Macintosh Central and East European Fonts and Keyboard Drivers
Special Note for Mac OS X Users:
Mac OS 10 includes basic fonts and keyboards. For
most users this is all that will be necessary. To engage the fonts and keyboards in system 10.* go to System Preferences and choose International. Choose Input Menu and you will see a long list of input options. In some cases you are provided the option of the typewriter layout of the language and a layout more user friendly to North Americans. For example, for Czech you may choose Czech which uses the typewriter layout found in the Czech Republic or Czech-QWERTY which places the z and y in the location more familiar to Americans.
