    Thankfully, I don't think that much of this is going to apply to my work.
    Remember that I am concentrating on numerals only, and that my work is on a
    project that is written in Java and uses Java's native methods to handle
    Unicode whenever possible. So most of the implementation work has already
    been done for me by the fine people at Sun Microsystems.

    Where I may run into problems is when I begin implementing non-digits (e.g.
    Roman numerals, vulgar fractions) into CLforJava. That's still a little
    ways off.
