Unicode Font Characters



This routine enables Unicode Characters to be easily obtained.  There is a problem on how to input a Unicode character into a word processor or Unicode text editor.  Different programs and operating systems require different ways of doing the task of imputing a Unicode character into a program.  This routine helps to simplify this by simplifying the task of finding the wanted Unicode characters and enabling the easy placing of the characters on the clipboard.  Once on the clipboard they can be easily pasted into a program.

Unicode characters can be given a decimal value or a Hex value.  The hex value number is more manageable, however many people may not be familiar with hexadecimal notation.  The program enables the selection of a character by hexadecimal value or decimal value.

The interface is for 1.2linu?k version.  The latest 1.2linu?l version has the ability to index the list of Unicode groups.

The differences can be seen in the way some of the Unicode characters are displayed.
When the characters are put onto the ClipBoard from both programs and inserted into LibreOffice the displayed characters are both the same.
