The good thing about 7-bit ASCII is that it's also UTF-8 compatible. Definitely put that | where it should be, none of this u-acute business!
Agreed!  :) :) :)
The good thing about characters sets is that they are (on CPCs) usually small, like 2 KB. Even using a bigger disc with a something like 700 KB format, such a characters file will be only 4 Kb (because the block size is 4 KB, so that's the minimum). Therefore I thought to provide some more character set file on the application disc. But I have to find out how many are too much or too few.  ;) :)

Make the editor ROMable, add a 16KB font ROM, which should allow 2048 characters - although tbh you'd probably only need 500 or so to cover most needed characters, so you could define nice bold and italic sets as well, and some funky symbols.

Yes, it's planned to have a ROM version too. Hope it fits in one ROM.
Your idea is good. In case I need a 2nd ROM anyway, it can be filled up with characters / character set.  :)
