Look at the PDF file in the lower corner.It has 16 pins, all named the same as all HD44780 compatible displays i have seen, so i think that it most likely will work with the code i the Arduino playground (NOT the serial code).
For interest the silk screen reference is P-B2A16CT-E 94V-0
By far the most stringent and also the most widely accepted of such tests is the Underwriters' Laboratory Standard for safety, UL 94, for electrical devices. The test, involving the burning of a specimen in the vertical position, is the one by which most flame-retardant (FR) plastics are rated. In this test, the best rating is UL 94V-0, which defines a flame duration of 0 to 5 sec, an afterglow of 0 to 25 sec, and the presence of no flaming drips that ignite the dry, absorbent cotton located below the test specimen. -- (source)
If I can control lots of LEDS with a small number of output pins then why not a parallel LCD, saving my Arduino pins for something else... Is this possible or am I on completely the wrong track... If I am correct, and get a result I will prepare a turorial... If I am on the wrong track let me know..
