I've uploaded a new application "nafe-0.1.exe.tar.gz" for creating console fonts.

I've been researching character sets for the top 50% of languages: English, Portuguese, Spanish, German, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, Hindi and Bengali.  So far, my research suggests that Hindi and Bengali are the hardest to cover in the *nix world.

We could _almost_ squeeze all the needed accent characters into the top 128 characters of a 255 character font.  Such a font could help with internationalizing text-based applications.

I'd be interested in discussing this with anyone who is familiar with romanization of non-English languages.
