Microsoft has an almost forgotten, but still working, syntax for asking
such multiple questions (note the change to "all characters"):
for %Y in ("Product %X\functions\*.*") do ask "Can product %X correctly
perform function %Y on all characters in Unicode version %N?"
Perhaps a mechanism is needed to AND together the answers for each
product. If the result is TRUE, product %X might be considered to
support Unicode version %N.
