I don't expect support/labour; just a 'parking place' under the ETHZ flag.

see below

Well that would justify using SF.

========== I've added extra chars to Oberon10.Scn.Fnt  to get:
       OB2ULINE.Scn.Fnt  10.02.2003 20:28:01    2777
With some text-string using it in your MainTool , you can just 'wipe and
dab' any text which has unrendered chars.
Try it on these: ----
März Äthiopien Über gewöhnliche außer = CyKey £84-60
Dokumentet på adressen ni sökte hittades inte på denna ..operaföreställning
This still needs attention:===
et de Maïs   ... plutòt dans l'héroïne récurrente.
And I sometimes see the 'copywrite' sign un-rendered.
Are there 'special' Czech chars ?   Use Hex.Open to see the value of the
unrendered chars that you eg. get off the inet.

I started to fill in Cyrillic chars (they are all > 127) in Oberon10.Scn.Fnt
But at one stage, before I had completed, the results were distorted;
as if some structure is 'overflowing'.   It needs to be investigated.
I used: AsciiCoder.CodeFiles % ^ 
with OB2ULINE.Scn.Fnt selected
and got this:----------

Subject: OB2ULINE.Scn.Fnt

AsciiCoder.DecodeFiles % OB2ULINE.Scn.Fnt ~
