Yes, I've got a demo version of Code2000, but I cannot buy a complete set
because I've got no credit card to make electronic payments. Here in
Ukraine 99.9% of people still use cash, y'see... Also, my comp is not fast
enough to run WinNT or Win2000, so I use Win98 with some extracts from
Office2000 (like Word2000). So all my "exotic" studies are performed with
MIM (Manual Input Methode) ::humor:: ::all laugh:: Sometimes I use Keyman
(it covers lower ASCII). Now I plan to write a *.kmn-driver for Tamil-TSC,
because I like the Tamil fonts using glyphs (like Vaigai). But it takes
sOOOOO much time...
