Hi,

  Can anybody tell me which char set is understood in
  HFS volumes. For e.g. in DOS only A-Z, 0-9 and _ are
  the valid characters.=20
  So, what is for HFS.
  Can anybody give me a list for HFS or a pointer to find
  out ??
  Again, for writing into a HFS volume for creating a CD image can we go =
for UNICODE .=20
  For eg. the volume name length for HFS volumes is
  27 characters in length. How do we store a UNICODE=20
  volume name in that space???
  The HFS volumes contain data in "Big Endian " format.
  Can anybody tell me what are the fields which has to be
  filled in Big Endian format.
  For eg. in ISO9660 , in Primary Volume Desriptor some
  fields are written in both Little and Big Endian format.

  Waiting for u help and suggestions.

  regards
  Biswaroop Banerjee
