I've downloaded it (as well as the bitmap fonts it advises to add when running under Windows) and it works, but it doesn't fit very well in the environment (of course :(( ). For instance, it can access TTF fonts only if they are in the fonts directory of Yudit (although I have to check more about it. Maybe there's a way to link it to the Fonts directory of Windows). Installed fonts of Windows are unaccessible unless copied there (quite a loss of memory :(( ). Also, it seems to need some tweaking in order to see some characters in the editor pane (for instance, for some strange reason I seem not to be able to get the Arabic characters correctly in the editor, while they appear OK in the keymap chooser. I don't have this problem with kana though...). I think I need to read the howto configure... Like most powerful Linux programs, it doesn't let itself be used easily at first ;))) .

You're welcome! Christophe. Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
