I guess the next step would be a bot or module to try to normalise these strings before doing regex-matches.

Image is example output for the following code:

from unicodedata import name; chars = [f"""'{c}': ({ord(c)}, {name(c)})""" for c in "Spam message goes here"]; print('\n'.join(sorted(set(chars))))

Another little created with 's tool and tile-set.

I've actually been modifying the tool a bit to suit my own needs, especially when it comes to keyboard controls, and you can now download it from the zett-darkstone-editor repository on my GitHub page.

If you want to play around with it without installing an emulator, you can run zett-darkstone-editor from your web browser through WebMSX

Controls are on the GitHub page.
