Hebraists still can't upload our most widely used
electronic Hebrew Bible to Unicode, I'm focusing on
the 2 items *definitely* needed for that.

international and has *some* checks and balances---far
fewer, it would seem, since about 1988.

Thank you for this clarification--I had been very
puzzled about the country membership situation
