    I meant "printed documents", sorry for the typo. The point is that it is
    meaningless to describe a printed document as Unicode, I suppose unless

    whether it was encoded in Unicode, some legacy encoding, or something
    invented by someone who is trying to undermine Unicode. So I would
    understand a Unicode text as being one in electronic form, not a printed
