    Is there any kind of "hall of fame/shame" presentation on what software does &
    does not support unicode? I know the topic of new software and support for
    unicode came up before on this list and there were some interesting responses,
    and also that there are excellent sites on unicode resources, but I'm not aware
    that the info is presented in this way.

    Also, what about a commercial & FOSS "unicode compliant" certification that
    could go on software boxes and download sites (different from the Unicode savvy
    logos discussed a while back, at least as I understood the latter).

    More to the point, has anyone spoken with any of the designers/marketers of
    Eudora about why they made the choice they did? Might be illustrative.
