saving simple text files is ok. is there a RichTextBox kinda control in awt/swings or say i wanna create an editor that
1. supports different formats ( fonts etc ) for different sections of text
2. restores the text format when the file is reopened
3. parses the text entered ( eg
) and generate appropriate smiley chars the problem is that i don't know the corresponding char codes... or are these images being inserted into text
4. unicode char set supports around 64k chars, are all of them usable on all platforms, if not what are the deciding factors
got any suggestions???
