There is currently some discussion about Unicode and Greek on the B-Greek mailing list. This reminds me that it might be interesting to define our expectations for a Unicode compliant Bibleworks.

Here are some thoughts of mine:
1. The BW Unicode font has to have the same size and look as the old one. N.B. the size of the blank!
2. A conversion tool for old documents is needed.
3. The keyboard assignment is critical. In my ideal world it should be user adjustable.
4. There must be a complete, user-friendly character table with copy and paste capability.

A problem I see is how accent-INsensitive search is working within Unicode? When every accented letter has its own glyph?
