I've basically got somewhere now with unicode and windows.
In my local tree it can now accept unicode input either from the system
(e.g. altering the input language on WinXP) or from things like KeyMan
(www.tavultesoft.com) even on non-Unicode OS's like win95.
It handles the WM_UNICHAR message so we will finally be able to work
with keyman on win9x.
However, it still can't input individual unicode codepoints by typing
Alt-(type Codepoint on NumPad) e.g. Alt-0-9-4-5 for lower greek alpha.
(I think this is bug 4476 so I'll have a look to see if ToAsciiEx is the
Note that this does not affect the GUI, so it is not related to bugs
1625, 1635. It'll be a lot more work to get a full unicode build since
MS uses UTF16 but abi resource strings are ascii.
It requires MSLU (bug 3655) so if I can commit this the build
instructions will need to be changed to say that you must have
unicows.lib either from MS or from libunicows.sf.net
Screenshot is of random gibberish using Keyman to input Tengwar
(Tolkiens elvish alphabet).
I need to clean it up a little before I commit to remove some
unnecessary changes because it changes a lot of files.
