comments: UTF-16, an encoding of ISO 10646 to Informational

From: Hart, Edwin F. (

I have just one suggestion: I would suggest that the introduction label
UTF-16 as a "character encoding scheme" (as I understand the term) for

I also think that this document describes the transformation algorithms much
simpler than what ISO did in Amendment 1 to ISO/IEC 10646-1: 1993. You did
a better job than we did on the amendment!

                Subject: Last Call: UTF-16, an encoding of ISO 10646
to Informational

                The IESG has received a request to consider UTF-16, an
encoding of ISO
                10646 <draft-hoffman-utf16-04.txt> as an Informational RFC.
This has
                been reviewed in the IETF but is not the product of an IETF

                The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and
                final comments on this action. Please send any comments to
       <> or
<> mailing lists by September 13, 1999.
