    The character set is ISO 10646. Unicode provides additional files and
    projects. The leading one is the CLDR. This project is where all the
    peculiarities you discuss should be documented.

    Unicode's globalization doctrine (internationalization of the
    environment + localization of the edges) is stabilised by BCP 47 and
    RFC 4646 by Mark Davis and Addison Phillips; They provides a
    consistent language tagging [language, characters, region] for the
    environment (pages and protocols), localization (CLDR files), and
    language applications.
