I'm Gerard Rinckes of the Meertens Institute in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
We're doing research on the dutch language and culture. Therefore, we
maintain large databases. To maintain this information for over 20 years
we're converting the databases to SGML.
My question is: how long will ASCII be the standard code? Can we expect
major changes in the standard code? Or: is the information safe in ASCII?

I don't know wheter you're the right organisation to ask these questions? If

not, sorry for the time.

Your sincerely,

Gerard Rinckes.
