    Although there is Unicode Note in regards to the use of Unicode specifically within markup languages:

    Since now is the time of XML, HTML, etc, practically Unicode text is utilized within markup languages most of the time. Even Office document formats such as Open Office and Microsoft Word are now based on XML. Unicode Consortium cannot assume that Unicode will be used in plain text and be completely vague in terms of the interaction between Unicode and markup languages. So these efforts to define the relationship between Unicode and markup languages are needed for more standard treatment of Unicode text within markup documents.
