Non-Unicode Character Sets
I am told that conversion of some character sets through Unicode is lossy and cannot be round-tripped. But it occurs ot me that as long as one has the private use area, "unknown" characters can always be preserved. If a particular mapping loses information, isn't that more a weakness in the mapping then in Unicode itself? Are there some standardized national character sets with so many non-Unicode characters that they cannot fit into the PUA? Even with planes 15 and 16? Is there any character set in the world that cannot be considered a "subset of Unicode"? -- Paul Prescod - ISOGEN Consulting Engineer speaking for himself The new revolutionaries believe the time has come for an aggressive move against our oppressors.
