Yes, for that project I just need letters up to 0xFFFF i.e. latin-1 and -7.
Currently I have copied a keyboard translation into 
that will give me greek chracters on [AltGr][Letter]. Nonetheless the 
Windows implementation of the simulator suffices without such a trick 
it can intercept the [AltGr] keystrokes. I have not evaluated yet 
whether the
current VBT input form would allow a similar mechanism.

It would be good if that was available until January so that I can 
approach to
finish my work until February. Fortunately there is some work which I could
do in advance at least if the interfaces should not change radically. At 
I should have some result at the beginning of March.

Thanks for your effort,
