Quick NVDI Unicode support question

Post by LuigiThirty »

Does NVDI 5's Unicode implementation support the SMP characters (U+10000-U+1FFFF)? I can't tell if the 16-bit VDI functions take UTF-16 or just straight 16-bit character index codes.

I don't think so, since by the time NVDI was developed, encoding of such characters wasn't even well defined. Also i don't think that fonts with such characters were available.
