    I have a HD44780 based 16x2 alphanumeric lcd that only displays
    english characters.. I'd like to replace it with one that supports
    additional language characters.

    Anyone know of a manufacturer of an lcd like that?

    All parts include an HD44780 compatible controller which can be
    ordered in either: Standard, European, Cyrillic, Russian, or Greek
    font options.

    With more than 40,000 different combinations in our regular range, we
    have the display for your application. If we haven't, we can always
    fully or semi custom them for you!

    Actually, I'm hoping to find one lcd that supports all characters
    rather than having different lcds for different font options. Not
    sure if such a device even exists though...

    Along similar lines, it would be really nice to have a display where
    one could redefine any of the 256 characters rather than just the
    first 8.

    It seems like there would be a big market for an lcd that supports
    multiple language fonts, yet its definately looking like this will be
    a tough find!

    Is there perhaps a non-HD44780 (maybe a serial interface) that has
    more than just english characters? (I cant change the enclosure
    surronding the LCD, so I have to stick with a character based 20x2
    display).

    I'd say use a graphics display, where you'd do the chargen in software, or
    at least have the character "rom" as part of your firmware package.
