    I agree with Philippe on this one. A sensible, and easily understandable, motto
    like "The world speaks Unicode" would be much better. The word "savvy" just
    sends a shiver of embarrasment down my spine. Not only is "savvy" not a word
    that is probably high in the vocabulary list of non-English speakers, but I
    don't think many native English speakers would ever use it by choice (maybe it's
    just me, but I really loathe the word).

    And for what its worth, the logos are definitely NOT snazzy (hmm, don't like
    "snazzy" either, though I can't think of a better alternative).
