> Woo-hoo! Finally, a real answer,
I am sorry for you, but when one posts to some high-volume mailing list, he
should expect a rather bad signal/noise ratio; this is often seen as an
opportunity to get some really good answers from people that usually you did
not think about; on the other hand, there are always a number of answers, or
even part of posts, that are unuseful, and some even misleading.
Another view is that these high-volume lists are set up to give opportunity
for a lot of readers to learn things. In this sense, I believe some people
did learn things about how to manage Unicode datas with C. I hope they were
not too much misleaded, though.

I also saw speculations in Mr Ienup Sung's post... Looks like it is human
nature, I'd say.
