    How very cute.

    What money was spent by that company between 1993
    and 2001 on standardization was chiefly for
    JTC1/SC2/WG2 and CEN/TC304 activities, and it was
    spent with the agreement of the two co-owners
    co-directors who both signed the cheques. For my
    part, I regret not one penny of the money we
    chose to spend on standardization travel, nor one
    minute of the time I invested in drawing up
    script and character proposals. If I may be so
    bold to say so, the Unicode Standard and ISO/IEC
    10646 -- and computer users worldwide -- are
    better off for the "investment" made between 1994
    and 2001 than they would have been otherwise.
