non unicode character
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"?

move against our oppressors. We have established a solid beachhead
