Unicode mapping tables available

To avoid any potential problems, I redid the character set table archive I was
maintaining here at CRL/NMSU. I removed all tables that can already be found
at the Unicode ftp site and removed all of the tables that are only useful to

Most of the mapping tables included are not already part of some well known
conversion package or provided elsewhere in this particular format (Format A
in Unicode terms), with the exception of three useful tables which were
generated from data in the "tcs" package.

The tables should all map to the most recent version of Unicode (2.0 and the
forthcoming 2.1 at the time this was written).

If anyone wants to donate more mapping tables, I would be happy to include
them in this archive. The more tables we have, the easier it is to migrate
text to Unicode!

The tables all have an X11-style copyright (not very restrictive) because I
typed most of them in myself. Please let me know of any problems found with
the data or with copyrights.
