reader for this file

Hi,
Is there also a readable tekst file with all the info?
My laptop broke down in Spain and Im now in Bamako, Mali heading to South Africa. Being able to get this info on my smartphone would be very helpful.

Anyone ideas or already a file at hand I can read with my smartphone?

yes thank you very much for your extensive WP files.. very much appreciate your work...

well a minor issue, which may not apply to everyone who is trying to unpack and read the files.. but yeah... may it's only me but I noticed that "all" countries you did write with the German "Umlaute" are not being correctly unpacked on PC's with "non-German" keyboards... actually all countries containing a "Ä, ü ö ß" appear as "?" sign like T?rkei" as a sample... this are declared corrupt on my UK-keyboard under a UNIX OS, even using UTF-8 Unicode fonts, can't rename the file names which is a pain... but yes on the German M$-Windoof PC they show up correct...

question... regarding that we are here in a international forum on HU... and not that many of us own a German keyboard here...

well would it be possible to alter or supply your future edition files with country names containing "ae, oe, ue and ss" instead of the "Ä, ü ö ß" please.. or may just write "Turkey" instead of "Türkei" and so on..
would make live a bit easier... at least for most of the HU folk...

keep going.. your contribution is a valuable source for all of us... thanks

Sorry Spooky,

UNIX is for me a strange world. I think the most users have no problems. You are the first.

Maybe if Arial Unicode MS is installed it works. This font You can get for free by Microsoft. The filename isARIALUNI.TTF.

That's true, but the first versions of my file have been only published in foren with german language. Later I placed it here too. If I had thought before, that I will publish the file on english-language forums, I would have used no Ä, Ö, Ü, ß, but now, take it as it is cause I'm too "tired" to change it.

Regards

Ulrich

well, well that's a shame really...
I only where asking to rename 16 "file names", while you are doing further updates along the line in future, not right away, nor just for me, but for the HU folk here...
sorry to here that the files are for Germans only and set in to concrete...
