scripts and using 16-bit Unicode strings.
In other words, the basic encoding support is there, but there are basically no Unicode-specific
APIs in the standard. No character properties, no collation that is guaranteed to do more than
strcmp, etc. Script writers have to rely on implementation-specific functions or supply their own.
I am working on getting some of the definitions, syntax and semantics upgraded to include
supplementary code points (where not already covered by surrogate pairs in 16-bit text), but I got
involved a little late for the upcoming edition 4.
