One way to avoid such things in the future would be to
use Classpath's CharData class.
as proposed by Mark Wielaard

By loading the data from a class file instead of a
resource, we can probably reduce the set of essential
files needed to run HelloWorld quite a bit, as there
may no longer be a need to do all that resource
loading stuff. And we can rely on Classpath to provide
us with a current CharData file, which is a good
thing, IMHO.

What do you think?
