Kenneth Whistler referred to a file that is part of the publicicly and freely provided Unicode
Character Database, showing various important code point property assignments. I believe that he
assumed that reviewers of public issues would be familiar with, or else familiarize themselves
sufficiently with, the Unicode Standard to arrive at an informed opinion.

Language tags are likely to be useful for any multimedia system. I would expect there to be
sufficient bandwidth in a DVB system to carry either out-of-band (meta) data for plain text, or else
to send richtext of some kind (e.g., XHTML).
