I’ve been using UTF-8 in my e-mail for several years now. I don’t know
what you mean.

Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, QuarkXPress 7,
Microsoft Publisher, Scribus, Corel Draw, Corel Photo-Paint, XeTeX --
all use Unicode.
The only major DTP/graphic applications that don’t support Unicode are
Adobe PageMaker, Adobe FrameMaker, Corel Ventura and Adobe/Macromedia
Freehand. I wonder if it’s a co-incidence that all these applications
are practically extinct now, and no longer developed...

Microsoft Word has been using Unicode since 1997. OpenOffice/StarOffice,
AbiWord, Apple Pages, Apple TextEdit -- all use Unicode. The only major
wordprocessing software that does not support Unicode is Corel WordPerfect.
After reading your posts, I come to believe that some time in the 1990s,
you must have built a time machine and this is your first trip.
