Which languages can be supported by a text
reader based on a Windows platform, depends
on which CodePage is in use when displaying
the original text file.
A CodePage is a set of characters which can
be displayed at once, each having a unique
code to represent it.
This represents the West European character
set. A Windows program which uses this Codepage
can display English, French, German, Swedish,
Norwegian, Icelandic, Danish, Spanish, Portugese,
Catalan, Italian, Finnish and some others.
This was the only Codepage the original Book
The first language other than
English tried on Book Reader - Finnish - now
with updated scroll bar text.
Early version of Book Reader displaying
Slightly later version displaying Swedish
V3.4 showing Icelandic. Thanks to Ragnar
for the scroll bar text and comments about
character shapes. Hopefully it looks a little
better now. Apparently the title last word
should have a double L. I will have to fix
this later - I suppose the text at Runeberg
is wrong? At least I think that's where
it came from.
