    I am afraid you din't catch my idea: I was talking about conversion
    tables/tools for that Tibetan extension to *GB*2312*, which was mentioned by
    Ken Whistler. It is this encoding which, according to the author of,
    n2558.pdf is used for "gigabytes of data".

    The Unicode precomposed characters don't yet exist (and never will,
    hopefully), so there is no converting them from/to anything else.
