I wish this page has less FUD about Unicode.  Reference to Unicode
being controlled by Microsoft is a prominent example.  As for the list
of problems with Unicode given on that page - all of the items in the
list are arguable and, IMO, all can be refuted.

I do have first-hand experience of working with Unicode consortium (I
have contributed to extensions of Tibetan block in 3.0).  I want to
say for the record that people from Unicode/WG2 I worked with were
very open-minded, helpful and professional.  Oh, and none of them was
from Microsoft ;-).

SY, Uwe
