    Yes, we did and this in a language understood in the given country. I'm
    not sure a series of workshops in English in French-speaking Africa is
    for instance a good thing.

    A series of workshops (in French, Arabic or Berber) is planned for
    Morocco later this year on this subject (Unicode, multilingual documents
    and font technology).
