Totally off the subject of recent topics, and for that matter UNICODE
itself (sorry), but does anyone know what the USSR GOST 19768-87 so-called
"New KOI-8" character set is/was? (As opposed to 19768-74 "Old KOI-8" which
is widely used in netnews, etc.) Is it the internal national equivalent of
ISO 8859-5 / ECMA-113, or is it something entirely different?

Also, does anybody know if GOST still exists, and if so, under what name?
