    Well, that depends on what one assumes "the Unicode Standard", "ISO/IEC 10646" and "character set" to mean. I use UCS to refer to the abstract character repertoire that is coded by the Unicode Standard and ISO/IEC 10646, and even to refer to the coded character set that is common to both; but each of those standards is more than just a character repertoire or coded character set.
