What exactly _would_ be wrong with calling UNICODE a
thirty-two bit encoding
If I have a 32 bit integer type, holding a Unicode code point, I have
11 bits left over to hold other data. That's worth knowing.
Btw, saying approximately 20.087 bits (Am I calculating that
right -- log2[ 17*65536 ]?) causes many people to think they
are just being teased.
They'll get over it.
