Nice article. Good to see some mainstream publicity for this worthy

My eyes rolled waaay up when I got to the part about "You see, boys and
girls, computers think only in numbers" -- in a Silicon Valley paper,
yet! But I guess this did appear in the Business section, not the
Technology section.

On the typographical dark side, it was quite discouraging to see ``this
horrible quoting convention'' in a Web publication of an article about
Unicode. Should we tell them about “real” quotes?
