    ATSUI is supported under Carbon on Mac OS X, Carbon on Mac OS 9, and
    native Mac OS 9. The native Mac OS 9 version and Carbon Mac OS 9
    versions are frozen (the native one at an earlier level); the OS X
    version continues to evolve.

    I don't know why the demo doesn't do hit testing properly, but ATSUI is
    supposed to work on 9. I'd strongly recommend using the CarbonLib

    Speaking of which, run, do not walk, to:

    and sign up for the carbon-development mailing list. You will find it a
    more fruitful place to ask questions about Apple technologies.
