> Unicode was defined by a consortium of major American
> computer manufacturers. From version 1.1 on, Unicode is
> scrupulously kept compatible with ISO/IEC 10646 and its
> extensions. The latest fact I found that Unicode 4.0
> character repertoire$B!!(Bcorresponds to ISO/IEC 10646:2003.
> Also I understand that from Unicode 2.0 onwards Unicode
> covers all the code points of UCS-4. Now, my doubt is, in the
> current situation,
> - What is the need for continuing both of these two different
> coded character sets in parallel? Why can't they be merged?
> - Is there any additional issues/points taken care of by
> ISO/IEC 10646:2003 which are not there in Unicode 4.0 and vice versa ?
> Any funda on this will be really appreciated.
