No, not in the slightest. UTF8 requires many more fundamental changes.
The above change only concerns the Fastchar code where the bit pattern
for a character (line) to plot must be read. This is 1 bpp data taken
from the sprite in the bitmap font file. In previous versions this was
just a byte but now characters can be wider and more bytes may need to
be read.
