In reply to bavison:

What happens if I want to display, say, Chinese glyphs under RO4 or 6 now, then? Are there fonts available from ROOL? And is it even possible to specify the system alphabet as UTF8 on non-RO5 versions? (I'm guessing not!) However, looking at the UCS FM spec on Castle's website, it seems you can force a particular encoding when you request a font handle, so maybe that would work?

Has anyone tried using the RO5 FM on RO4 or 6 in this way?
