    You don't "store a version of Unicode on your machine." Unicode is a
    coded character set, not an application.

    What you have stored on your machine is a number of applications, many
    of which support Unicode, and some of which may support a different
    version of Unicode from others.

    (OK, some of us do store a particular version of the Unicode *data
    files* on our machines, but that has no bearing on the level of Unicode
    support provided by applications.)
