    I guess the phrase Philippe tried was "Unique Code" which today's Google
    translator returns "ユニークなコード". If I try "Unicode Code", Google
    translator returns "ユニコードのコード". BTW, the romanized annotation
    given by Google "Unicodeno kōdo" would be wrong (because if Japanese
    people read "Unicodeno" as romanized pronunciation instead of English word,
    the pronunciation would be "Yu Ni Ko De No").
