New video about my browser for FoC archives (5 minutes): You can try it out by downloading two files (and installing Qemu): • Then:

The Mu computer's FoC archive browser now renders most Unicode. See the before/after images below. I'm loading 140KB of Unicode glyphs from its system font. Unicode blocks now supported: latin, greek, cyrillic, armenian, hebrew, arabic, syriac, thaana, n'ko, indian (ISCII), sinhala, thai, lao, tibetan, myanmar, georgian (< U+1100) While this is useful in a mostly-English corpus, there are caveats for more intensive use cases: • No support for combining characters yet. This makes support for the other languages I know (Hindi and Tamil, which use _matras_) well-nigh useless. • GNU Unifont's glyphs for the non-Latin languages I know turn out to be quite spectacularly ugly.

Support for combining characters that plumbs new depths of mediocrity: (see the alt text on the image attachment)
