Web pages in twenty languages are now available at the Web sites of
the Tenth International Unicode Conference. The languages covered
include Chinese (both Simplified and Traditional), Japanese and
In addition to these Web pages (which use legacy character sets such
as GB2312, BIG5, SJIS etc), the Web sites provide a Unicode page,
containing the text of all twenty languages.
Two versions of the Unicode page are provided. One is encoded using
UTF-8, a Unicode encoding scheme compatible with ASCII, in which byte
values over 127 (decimal), ie 7F (hexadecimal), are used to encode
characters outside the ASCII set. The second Unicode page uses HTML
Numeric Character References (NCRs) to encode characters outside the
ASCII set. Any Unicode-capable browser should display both pages
correctly, as long as you have installed the necessary fonts. At the
time of writing, Unicode-capable browsers include Alis' Tango and
Netscape's Communicator 4.0 beta.
To view any of the pages, go to <http://www.reuters.com/unicode/iuc10>
