anyone? : uca and collation to ascertain various possible character
groupings / catagorisations that are specific to various specified
languages? to get some other matches, more than just an absolute match
or not absolute match?
am i on the right track there? or is there a better direction maybe?
i'm looking for a reasonably even coverage of the main languages.
just checking. thanks.
