[locale] Re: a postscript question (fwd)

 Товарищи, можете подсказать этому человеку (который Tomas) как в постскрипте
можно указывать символы с кодом > 255 (он прикручивает печать к AbiWord под
utf8 локалью и поэтому ему надо знать как генерить PS для документов, которые
содержат символы, которые все сразу ни в одной кодировке не присутствуют).
 Писать по-английски и наверно лучше лично (письма в список рассылки
abiword-dev не попадут или попадут через день после отсылк).

 Best regards,

 I've heard that there are 2 options: either call the character by it's Adobe
name (e.g. 'asciitilde'  or '/asciitilde') or change encoding vector (by
emitting PS command) and emit a character whose code is the index of that
glyph in new encoding vector.

 As for 1st way - I was unable to use it for some unknown to me reason (I
don't know PS at all though read intro to PS, so that's unsurprising) - GS
says symbol undefined (I tried to insert the following in the PS file produced
by AW:
	/r show
	r show
 - and got message that 'r' is undefined in both cases). So additional PS code
is needed to be able to call glyphs by their names.

 As for 2nd variant - I didn't try it.
