Dear Sirs,

We are a Swedish company that develops and manufactures operator terminals
for industrial automation. To be able to approach the Asian markets, we must
support more character sets. We use microcontrollers with dedicated RTOS,
and our software is written in C. Our questions to you are:

- Do you know any companies that sells library functions for f.ex Unicode
string handling instead of standard 1-byte character string handling ?

- Where can we find bitmap fonts for Unicode character set that can be used
in embedded environment ? Today, we use 16*16-pixel bitmaps for each

Thank you in advance,

Tommy Håkansson
