Uses

G.I.F.T. Character Map supports dragging and dropping of formatted selections between the Microsoft Windows "Word Pad" which turns it into a more capable editor.

It is ideal for creating text based logos for web sites as it can exports native HTML code, and can also save the created characters as a stand alone web page.

It can be installed to a users system, or run from a removable storage device such as CD's, DVD,s or Memory Sticks.
