My application contains a lot of chinese characters in it. I find that they are all displayed as garbage using the phoneME feature build for windows mobile/ARM.

Is this a missing feature or an incompatibility with my appication? I think I'm using UTF-8 encoding.

My MIDP phoneme feature build uses a bitmap font which only includes a limited
subset of UTF-8. In fact, the font is rendered for several characters into a kind of
ASCII art text file (midp/src/tool/fontgen/fontdef/*), which is then translated into C
(midp/src/lowlevelui/graphics/gx_putpixel/native/gxj_font_bitmap.c) and then built
into the VM. That is also the reason why bold and italic fonts are not supported.
