SILGraphite (formerly OpenGraphite) is a project within SIL's Non-Roman Script Initiative and Language Software Development groups to provide extensible cross-platform rendering capabilities for complex non-Roman writing systems. It consists of a rule-based programming language, Graphite Description Language (GDL), that can be used to describe the behavior of a writing system, a compiler for that language, and a rendering engine that can serve as the backend of a text processing application. SILGraphite renders TrueType fonts that have been extended by means of compiling a GDL program. It is currently being integrated into Gecko/Mozilla through the SILA project, a GNU/Linux port is also underway, and there are plans for OpenOffice.org and Abiword integration.
Xutf8 is a set of locale independent X11 functions. It includes functions to draw UTF-8 text in both the left-to-right and right-to-left directions. It has an input function which converts single-byte and double-byte strings to UTF-8. A function to create a specific fontset is also included.
GTK2 Text Editor is a simple Unicode text editor that supports many encodings. It works as a nice Notepad replacement, and can also be used as an encoding converter. It supports multi-level undo, right to left text (as in Hebrew), and other Unicode features. It can auto-close an XML/HTML tag. There is no syntax highlighting yet.
