It appears to me that the issue that William Overington suggested is just
plainly outside the problem domain of Unicode.
And, it also appears to me that the issue that William Overington suggested
has already been solved.
I can run this portable interpretable code, written in Unicode, on many
This solution uses Python 3.0, and is interpretable on any platform with
Python 3.0 installed.
As I understand it, Ruby is (or is nearly) Unicode ready.
I'm not sure of the Perl status, but I'd be shocked if it turns out Perl is
not Unicode savvy. (And if not current Perl, I presume Perl 6 will be
natively Unicode savvy for Perl code.)
