I know next to nothing about unicode, but assuming you're just dealing with the Greek unicode characters, you could perhaps have a lookup-table of the two (or more?) bytes that represent each of the characters. You could then single out the characters from a binary-string of unicode by using that lookup-table (or parse-rules) to do what you wish with them. And if you could grab each character's image from somewhere you could print them to screen (as images - not text) too... -- Carl Read
