Thanks Jim.
You finished the book yourself? Do you normally need help to finish a book?

Hi Ron,
How in depth does the book go into character-set support?
Thanx,

Siu: I think I've answered your question a couple of times in other threads.
Daniel: Chapter 6 is all about Character sets and encoders/decoders. The NIO classes dealing with charsets give you everything you need to create your own and add them to the JVM runtime environment.
