    Just for the record, ISO/IEC 10646 is freely available at
    The French version is behind the English one a couple of amendments.

    Just for the record, there is only one JFC in France and all other French
    people involved in internationalisation use Unicode and not ISO 10646 (one
    of the big reasons being that Unicode is available while 10646 "may not be
    photocopied or reproduced in any form" - from the licencing text).
