    Do the Hungarians indeed pronounce "Unicode" that way?
    I do not know much about Hungarian, but as far as I know,
    an "U" is never pronounced as /juː/, in that language.
    Indeed, most European languages (including my mother tongue,
    German) have /u/ or /y/ for an initial "U".

    Hence, I guess, Dr. Gábor Hosszú has put those "az" in front
    of the "U"s, for good reasons.
