What Is Unicode?

May 11th, 2008 | by LTD

Recently, while I was out of the country, a lively discussion took place on the LTD list on the subject of Unicode. It all has gone quiet now. Perhaps all questions have been answered. I still think that character encoding and recognition of character encoding by client applications is one of the remaining frontiers of user-friendliness. Ideally, I don’t want to get involved in it and would expect the software to handle it all automatically – and correctly.

But back to the Unicode discussion on the LTD list: Here a short description of I found which I think is really helpful to lay the groundwork. From there I found my way over to Nick Rosenthal’s blog. And if you really want to immerse yourself into Unicode charts, you can do that here.
