Well I'm not sure. The Garmin Winter activity map (only unicode map I 
know that's free) only has latin1 characters in the .typ-file (languages 
French, English, German) - yet they use Unicode for it.
But I don't know if this is any sort of requirement.

okay thanks a lot for the clarification...  So for the case that you 
have a mapset/gmapsupp that contains both unicode and another code .img 
files - I'm pretty sure this is fine as long as the MDR and SRT are in
