Can you give me a reference for this on the Web? What subset of Unicode
characters is supposed to be supported now? When did the change become
official? Are there any implementations of the new version? I have been
going through the Java documentation at Sunsoft, which refers to Unicode
character strings in several places, but gives no information that I can
find on the relevant version of Unicode.
