I don't understand emf at all ;-)
But I was smart enough to understand the existing code in emf.trm.
UTF-8 would be nice IMHO as well as some sort of enhanced text.
a 13 year old techical article from microsoft. Maybe the file emfwr.cxx
from openoffice could also serve as documentation of the format. I will
very likely not have the time to do any coding myself.
Btw. I would find it quite useful, if the color sequence of the line
colors would be more similar in all terminals. Emf is quite different
from postscript and X11 for example.
