    Hello all,

    I have got a stupid question - that is, the question was asked of me
    and I didn't know what to say.
    What is ISO 10646?

    Usually I can asnwer questions like this by doing an Internet
    search, but in this case, I get varying answers:
    it is a code page; it is a character set; it is identical to
    "Unicode" (that is, the words "ISO 10646" and "Unicode" are
    interchangable); it is a paper describing a standard.

    So where can I find the "formal" definition and how can I tell that
    is the formal definition and why doesn't everybody agree?
