Hi again Grzegorz and Hi to Alan!
Thanks for the input in regards to displaying Japanese characters! The
unicode chart has the decimal and hexadecimal values of the Hiragana
alphabet, but I just could not find how to actually implement it.
For example, do I copy and characters from the chart or do I have to
use the decimal and hexadecimal values to display them?
I am playing around with both at the moment, so I will let you know how
I get on, but in the meantime, if anyone has an example of how it
should be done, I would appreciate it! =)
Thanks again in advance!
