Re: Hexadecimal in many scripts (ISO 14755)

Alain, OK, I guess I made a leap.

I thought the characters might be echoed somewhere as the string is
built up, to
confirm for the user what is being accepted, like an Asian input method.

I would also think the user might want a document somewhere expressing
to encoding maps, using the characters to be typed, as opposed to the
latin letters.

I will stop short of suggesting that we also need to map U to the 21st
letter of every alphabet so we can
reference natively, unicode characters equivalent to U+1234. (Could be
big trouble for the Hawaiians!) ;-)
