RE: Ten Years Later - XML 1.0 Fifth Edition?
> The set is large but finite. No, it's infinite. With ideographic languages, you can make up new symbols just as cheerfully as Western languages make up new words. And we're increasingly using ideographic languages in the West too - take a look at the typical instruction leaflet for installing a washing machine. Most of the characters it uses, like the one that says don't put your fingers in the electrical socket, aren't in Unicode, but at the rate we're going they soon will be. If we can have 2399;PRINT SCREEN SYMBOL then we can have anything. I thought I'd take a look at 4DF5;HEXAGRAM FOR THE MARRYING MAIDEN but it's very disappointing...
