forms16be – Initialize form properties using big-endian encoding

This pack­age pro­vides sup­port for UTF-16BE Uni­code char­ac­ter en­cod­ing (called a big-en­dian char­ac­ter string) for the text string type (PDF Ref­er­ence, ver­sion 1.7, be­gin­ning on page 158). Text strings are used in “text an­no­ta­tions, book­mark names, ar­ti­cle threads, doc­u­ment in­for­ma­tion, and so forth” (to par­tially quote page 158). The par­tic­u­lar ap­pli­ca­tion is to set prop­erty val­ues of form fields, at least those prop­er­ties that take the text strings as its value.

The pack­age con­tains sup­port for Ba­sic Latin plus the abil­ity to en­ter any uni­code char­ac­ter us­ing the no­ta­tion \uXXXX, where 'XXXX' are four hex dig­its.

The Pack­age works for dvips/Dis­tiller, pdf, Lua, and XeLaTeX.
