Dear Olaf,

I was glad to see my patch for dmp.c in the recent tetex beta.
But one part of the patch has been dropped.
MAXCHARS and Hprime have to be increased, since groff
goes UNICODE and the total number of chacarcer codes in
PS font description files already
IS greater then 256 in the new groff distributions.
It can be MUCH greater then 256 for multilingual
Windows TT fonts.

                 Sincerely, Michail
