I just started a discussion forum that may be of
interest at Quick Topic for the topic "Hausa charsets &
keyboards". It was prompted by a question on how to set
up keyboards for Hausa, but is meant to cover related
topics such as fonts. The focus of discussion is
Hausa, but since many languages in West Africa use
extended character sets and even have certain special
characters in common with Hausa, it may be of interest
to anyone working on localization in/for the region.
