some "Bugs" (or not yet implemented features ;) ) in the textinput-functionality:
- somoe special characters (ä, ö, ü, ß etc.) are not shown.
- CarriageReturn, Backspace and Cursor are not supported.

"It is not bug, it is a feature" :-)
National characters should be included and probably will be
one day. If you can, try to supplement it by editing file
Alphabet.java - I have only Latin and Polish chars and I
cannot type "_-umlaut" or "ss". If you do so, please send
me an update.
Backspace will be not handled - text is treated as bitmap
and characters erasing cannot be done in multiuser
I will think about cursors and CR handling, if it can be
easily done, it will be.

I send you a modfied alphatbet.java. "_-umlaut" (, , ) and "ss" () are supported now.
one idea for the backspace-problem:
1. step: put the width of every charcter typed in a line into memory. when you type "rqsw" e.g., "4;6;6;8" will be written into the 'letter-memory'.
2. step: when pressing backspace 4 times, this memory will be read the other way round and 4 retangles will be draw (direction from rigth to left !!). each retangle will be X pixels width correspondending to the number in the above mentioined 'letter-memory'. the colour of the retangles is the same as the backgroud-colour.
Alphabet.java with special characters
Polish and German national characters were added in v 0.71,
also BackSpace works in this release. Thanx for motivation.
