The basic ideas are the following:

  • Do the Unicode stuff first as an outside library that takes STRING_GENERAL instances as argument
    • The implementation should be as compact as possible for the tables, and of course very efficient. This is actually a quite difficult work since it requires some reading of the Unicode standard.
  • Implement helper classes using RAW_FILE as argument to read text file in a special unicode encoding
    • Looks like there are some kind of standard out there using BOM
  • update editor to accepts STRING_GENERAL instances as arguments and thus enabling user to enter unicode characters
