Oh, you may be right there, I should have qualified my statement: as
opposed to a Windows-specific charset I think Windows uses a universal
charset. I am not sure why UCS-16 is more ad-hoc than UTF-8, but I
would be more than happy if linux instead of UTF-8 moved to UTF-16 or
UTF-32, in view of the many charsets I need in my work. I am not
nearly educated enough on this topic to hold a coherent conversation
however, still reading.
Grrr!!  ...Pick a reason...
