Creating database, Kanji Font on J2me

I'm working on a Japanese Kanji flaschard application for the Palm OS, and eventually Pocket PC and cell phones, using j2me.

I've succeeded in getting a simple version of the program to run on the Java Wireless Emulator, using the MS Mincho font for display. I've also managed to create a .prc file and transfer it and run in on the Palm.

However, since the flashcards are contained in RMS storage, the data is not included in the file transferred, so it's unable to read or display any records.

What is my best option for transferring the data? Apparently, the RMS file is embedded in the j2me mechanism, and therefore can't be directly accessed by the file system.

At worse, it seems I may have to manually incorporate the flashcard into a hardcoded j2me program and write them directly as new records. However, that is obviously an option of last resort. Is there a better solution?

Another question: do I need to somehow copy the MS Mincho font to the Palm? I haven't actually tested the kanji display on the Palm yet.

Thanks in advance,
