So Unicode and ISO do not place any restrictions on what can be considered
to be a "legal" text stream; but, there is a lot of discussion in the
Unicode manual regarding various encoding issues such as those for the
Devanagari and Tamil scripts. These discussions explain the "correct" or
"required" encoding patterns to follow in order to support these rendering
phenomena. Is that a true statement?
