Hello Tatsuo & all,
First of all, I would like to thank all the ODBC team for their work.
I have been using various databases quite extensively and PostgreSQL ranks
among the best for ODBC support.

Would it be possible to use the hexadecimal \u000 notation in 7.2? Is there
a built-in function to convert hexadecimal into octal?
This would be an interesting feature as it seems to be a standard notation
for UNICODE values (http://www.unicode.org/charts/).
Also, Java has the ability to display UNICODE using \u000 notation. I think
it is the same with PHP although I am not sure.

Are some Japanese fonts designed to work only for EUC-JP or UNICODE?
Can all Japanese fonts be mapped from EUC-JP to UNICODE and conversly?

Yes, I am very interested in testing double-byte display in pgAdmin II.
pgAdmin I and II are developed in Visual Basic which supports double-byte
Unicode forms since SP4.
How about ODBC double-byte support?
Is any translation performed between back-end and front-end?
Are there special ODBC settings to display Japanese?
Are there limitations due to Windows (95/98/NT)?
I heard 95 Japanese support was catastrophic.
Presently, I have to store Japanese text in PostgreSQL 7.1 with PHP.
I will do my best to display Japanese text in pgAdmin II.
Greetings from Paris,
