I am James Liptak and trying to understand the correlation between UTF-8 and
ISO standards. From what I can see we have ISO -10646 is the mapping but
then goes on to saying ISO-8859 -1 (Latin- 1) not the Extended Latin
8859 -2.

My question is: Does UTF-8 use all of ISO - 8859 -(1-9) or is it specific
and only handles specific parts of ISO - 8859 which according the
publication V2.0 of Unicode standard is vague.
