Just as a matter of record, I feel compelled to point out that anything which
could be called a "Unicode 1.0 draft" dates from December 1990. Any 1989
paper to which Mr. Huang refers would have been an early working paper or
pre-1.0-draft in limited circulation, not an official document of the Unicode
