customizable keyboard for Palms

beyersbeyers Posts: 1Member
Hello to all you Gurus out there,

I've come up with this wacky idea and I need some help to make it
fly, so I'm hoping someone out there will lend me a hand.

What I want to do is to create a virtual keyboard for the Palm
that will allow me to "type" in Runes from J.R.R. Tolkien.

Here's what I think needs to happen and what I need is a place
to get the software I don't have yet:

1. Create the runes using something like Font Editor or convert
from TTF to something the Palm can read.

2. Create an overlay database of these characters for use with
VirtualKB (in conjunction with Hackmaster).

3. Using the new font and the new keyboard, type away
at my leisure!

Can anyone tell me:

a) is there a problem with this strategy that I haven't forseen?
b) how do I implement a new keyboard for VirtualKB?
c) anything else I need to know to do this!

Thanks a million,
