Not sure this is a desirable change. char can only address characters from the Basic Multilingual Plane. Java 1.5 have started to use int to overcome that issue actually. So unless there is a fundamental limitation in AFP such that characters beyond the BMP will never be usable, I think we want to stick to int. <snip/> Vincent
