Re: Unicode Overload! (LWIJF)

I was bumbling around the WWW this evenin' and found the following handy
tools for Unicode users (or Unicode wannabes)

Bjondi Character Agent - A freeware unicode-savvy replacement for the
Windows Character Map.  Very handy, and very clever but I don't think it
knows very much about Unicode 3.

AbiWord - An Open Source Word-processor for a wide variety of platforms
that can load, edit and save UTF-8 plain text, RTF, HTML and LaTeX files,
as well as it's own format.

The Code2000 font - A $5 shareware TTF that supports an astounding number
of Unicode (v3.x?) pages (including the elusive IPA Extensions), and is
only slightly over 800KB in size when zipped.  AFAICT it beats CyberBit
hands down in both regards, and IMHO it's slightly more readable.
