Just some notes from testing:

I, as I imagine other european Archos owners, miss the high-bit half of
the iso-8859-1 character set (such as ) so I did

Version 3.18 simply strips the high bit off all characters.

Version 4.13e appears to not strip or convert at all. "" displays as

Version 4.53 and later converts to 7bit ASCII in a semi-intelligent
manner. "" displays as "aao".

character display capability in this thing. I've found what looks like the
conversion table in v5.03a (at 0xe3bc) but changing it didn't make any

Looking forward to a datasheet! :-)
