Dear Michal,
Thanks for the update.

At least I can state that as long as the rc file will keep the "HELP" 
flag in WCE,
the WCE main window will fail to load its entire main menu.
this flag is clearly not supported on WCE.

So that, for example, access to log file will be impossible.

Moreover, on small devices,  this flag is improper (apart from the fact  
it is not working...):
its purpose is just to move the help menu to the top right corner of the 
main window :
then, because of other menu items texts that are much too large on small 
devices, the help menu goes away outside the screen.

So that finally, and even on wider screens, I highly suggest to remove 
that flag and to shorten some menu texts (eg replace "&Help" by "&?", 
"certificates" by "certs.").

Unicode : Be careful not to take unicode patch "partly" because many 
pieces of codes are relying one on the other, sometimes indirectly (eg 
through sprintf).
It was not obvious to track all of the modifications in 502.

I will check other stuff later.

Yours sincerely,
