Alioth's Journal: Bi-lingual 8 bit... 1

Journal by Alioth

I added UTF-8 support to my ZX Spectrum ethernet card project (since it has its own character generating routines)...I then used my dodgy 6 months worth of learning Spanish to translate all the menu items and messages to Spanish.

I was most gratified when I posted the string tables on a Spanish Spectrum forum that people said I'd done a good job so far! Not too many messages were too horribly wrong.

Anyway, there's a screen shot of an 8 bit system outputting accented chars from the 0xC3 part of UTF-8 here...
