[REBOL] Rebol Tech, please answer. Two questions. Re:(7)

From: slong:customcpu at: 12-Sep-2000 9:30

What was the ISO encoding did Amiga use for the A2000 systems? Using Rick Stiles' Uedit, I got all sorts of useful characters to print on inexpensive Canon BJ200 inkjets, even though they were not well supported. Things like the little superscript "o" for degrees, or the paragraph symbol were available with an "Amiga" key + character-key. You just had to know the translation table. For Greek "theta" (O+/) I had the choice of either lowercase or uppercase. XCad took them OK, and displayed/plotted them cleanly, either from direct keyboard input or when importing a text file. I haven't yet gotten this PC keyboard to do this on my SuSE Linux system :-(( Is it just ignorance on my part? VariCad <> uses the AutoCad "special character" system: "~"+2 for the o+/ "theta". You can't have an uppercase style of that one! With such a limited set of special characters, they don't understand my desire for the capability left behind in the Amiga.
