Ah okay - thanks.  I saw similar usage of tables in the old LPTK
project. Maybe we could use something there - it's written in Object
Pascal as well? The LPTK project used a BSD license.

Or, instead of building the tables ourselves (if they are not
available on the Unicode website), could we maybe look at something
like the OpenOffice source code and get the tables from there?
OpenOffice seems to handle Unicode quite well (from what I could see).
