Yeah :-)

As my blog posts labelled unicode will indicate I am a fan of using
unicode in program source:
http://blog.languager.org/search/label/Unicode

Of course it is not exactly a coincidence that I used APL a bit in my
early days.  At that time it was great fun though we did not take it
seriously.*

It is now about time that we stop taking ASCII seriously!!

And for those who dont know xetex, its is really xɘtex – a pictorial
anagram if written as XƎTEX

However in all fairness I should say that I cannot seem to find my
way to that promised land yet:
- xetex does not quite work whereas pdflatex works smoothly
- mathjax is awesome however its firmly latex (not xetex) based

* And the fact that there are recent implementations including web ones means
its by no means dead:

which I think unicode aficionados will enjoy
