ergonis software releases PopChar Win 1.3 with full support for Unicode Surrogates.

Hagenberg, Austria: May 24, 2005 — Ergonis Software® today released PopChar Win version 1.3 for Windows 95/8, ME, NT 3.x/4.x, 2000 and XP; an easy to use utility for inserting special characters, accented and foreign letters into any document.

With the growth of the internet, the world has become a smaller place, and sending emails, documents and digital photos across the globe has become the norm.

The problem is that even if the person you are communicating with speaks English, there may be words and names in their language that have special characters and umlauts. Including them in your files and emails is more than a little tricky, as the Windows Character Map is a fairly clumsy and awkward tool.

Many people choose to simply ignore the extra characters and umlauts, but these characters are not an optional addition or decoration. By leaving them out, the word is either misspelt or the meaning changed entirely.

PopChar Win allows the user to quickly and simply insert the desired characters, from all of their installed fonts, straight into the document. Without fuss, without having to copy and paste, without complications, and with no risk of making any mistakes.

When a special character is needed, the user simply clicks the system tray icon and selects the character of choice, which is then instantly placed into the document. No need to memorise complicated keystrokes, no need to search through the Windows Character Map, and no need to copy and paste between different documents.

Version 1.3 of PopChar Win offers full support for Unicode surrogates, allows switching between Unicode and Charset (ASCII) and supports console windows.

PopChar Win version 1.3 costs US$29.99 and may be purchased securely on the ergonis software website at Further details and a free trial version of PopChar Win may be found at
