Question about U+FFFC

Date: Mon May 24 1999 - 08:14:29 EDT

Hi there,

This character is defined in the standard as OBJECT REPLACEMENT CHARACTER, used
as I understand it, to facilitate the insertion of objects outside the scope of
a normal Unicode text stream. Would someone have an example of how this is used

i.e., Should you delimit the inserted object with FFFC and how is the object
data typically represented in the stream? For example, I'd like to represent an
inserted image file, would it look like

        \uFFFC C:\MyImages\Image.GIF \uFFCC

Any clarification would be greatly appreciated.
