 The Unicode Consortium was founded as a non-profit organization in 1991.
 It is dedicated to the development, maintenance and promotion of The
 Unicode Standard, a worldwide character encoding.  The Unicode Standard
 encodes the characters of the world's principal scripts and languages, and
 is code-for-code identical to the international standard ISO/IEC 10646.
 In addition to cooperating with ISO on the future development of ISO/IEC
 10646, the Consortium is responsible for providing character properties and
 algorithms for use in implementations. Today the membership base of the
 Unicode Consortium includes major computer corporations, software producers,
 database vendors, research institutions, international agencies and various
 user groups.
