Using a cover sheet with national characters.

There were some discussions about using the faxcover sheet with national characters. I got a solution for this from Alain Berger. Probably this may be helpful if you are a little bit more experienced with postscript than me.

For using national characters this piece of postscript code describes an extension of the character code. In the faxcover template this piece of code should be set to the used character set (in this example helvetica).
