THE UNICODE CONSORTIUM
The Unicode Consortium was founded as a non-profit organization in 1991.
It is dedicated to the development, maintenance and promotion of The
Unicode Standard, a worldwide character encoding. The Unicode Standard
encodes the characters of the world's principal scripts and languages, and
is code-for-code identical to the international standard ISO/IEC 10646.
In addition to cooperating with ISO on the future development of ISO/IEC
10646, the Consortium is responsible for providing character properties and
algorithms for use in implementations. Today the membership base of the
Unicode Consortium includes major computer corporations, software producers,
database vendors, research institutions, international agencies and various
