The information I gathered about Java 1.0.2 is located in the JDK at
http://java.sun.com/docs/books/jls/html/javalang.doc4.html. This indicates
the version of Unicode used by Java 1.0.2.
I am aware that Hangul was changed in Unicode 2.0, but was unable to find
definitive information on whether Eastern/Western European or Cyrillic
characters were remapped. With a quick test of Native2ASCII that comes with
JDK 1.1.6 I produced some serious remapping of Cyrillic characters. I only
had time to do a very quick and cursory test, so the likelihood of UIF (user
interface failure) is pretty high. :-)
Thanks for the information!

The only character move change from Unicode 1.1 to Unicode 2.0 is the
of the Hangul syllables area. In all other respects Unicode 2.0 is a
of Unicode 1.1 characters.

The issue for native2ascii is *character sets*, not *languages*.
But if it runs at all against JDK 1.0.2, the character set conversions
it supplies for all but Hangul characters should be the same as would
have been done for a JDK 1.0.2 conversion.
