In one thread Mr Constable says that I should not post about eutocode
graphics, yet in this thread he mentions me in relation to a graphics system
which is less to do with Unicode!
Since Mr Constable mentions me, I feel that it is only fair that I am
allowed to defend myself. Please note that I only have the problem of
having to defend myself from him now because Mr Kaplan chose to mention me
in another thread in the first place.
I am designing the eutocode graphics system using Private Use Area codes
because it is easier to decode and allows easy mixing of text and graphics
in Unicode plain text files for application in digital interactive
broadcasting and web based systems in the context of people being able to
prepare Unicode text files which are then used to customize a generic
software package. That is, the content author can produce lots of high
quality graphics results without having to have the knowledge, skill and
facilities to program in Java or some other computer language. This is
particularly important in the case of interactive broadcasting as the
facilities to produce the Java applications are rather specialist. We have
been over my views on the mistake of using the ordinary < character as the
entry signal for entering a markup bubble before and I have no intention of
even trying to defend that view against such overwhelming odds of how other
people think. Also, for interactive broadcasting, the fact that eutocode
graphics has good brevity as to the number of bytes needed to produce a
desired result is an important consideration. I am carrying out my research
as I think fit and applying it in tests very successfully.
