This is a very interesting text, and there is certainly much work
to be done in many areas. But it gives the impression that accented
characters in general, or Chinese and Japanese, cannot be dealt
with. This is clearly not true, there are wast and well-working
Chinese and Japanese nets, and all major browsers can deal with
the encodings for these languages as well as Greek and many others.
