Inventing new UTF's, or XTF's, or UTF:-)s is a little like punning, in
that there are at least three types of people:

a. those who do it
b. those who criticize those who do it
c. those who belong to both (a) and (b)

Jill, I'd be interested in details of your invented encodings, just for
fun. Please e-mail privately to avoid incurring the wrath of group (b).

Marco, remind me to tell you sometime about "Dynamic Code Pages."
