Sure the nationalized character ROMs are of interest. But I am afraid
you have to take them from the machine and read them with an 
eprom burner or put them to some other socket to read them.
Or you give a description from poking the values 0-255 to the screen
and describe what you see.

Can you switch to international (us i.e) character set? I guess that 
this is done by a video address line from the CRTC (mis-)used 
as additional character ROM address switch.
