RE: Ten Years Later - XML 1.0 Fifth Edition?
> Out of interest - what is the standard approach for > displaying some XML that contains a real mix [of] Unicode characters? I once worked on a UK government web site that had to display text in Chinese, Urdu, Bengali, Welsh, and English. And I'm afraid the bad news was that the available fonts simply weren't up to it. Native speakers of these languages told us that the results were unreadable. We ended up using graphics. I would like to believe that that situation has changed (this was about 8 years ago), but I can't see any evidence for this. I don't know if the site that we were building still exists. I found this page in Welsh http://www.dca.gov.uk/complwel.htm which seems to display incorrectly in both Firefox and IE (spot the question marks). There seems to be very little information now on UK government sites in Asian languages. One example is http://www.insolvency.gov.uk/ which appears to be relying on images and PDFs. Depressing really. Michael Kay
