Link: The Absolute Minimum Every Software Developer Absolutely, Positively Must Know About Unicode and Character Sets (No Excuses!)

Great writeup, highly recommended.

English speaking people tend to ignore all that Unicode stuff more than we should. It's a mixture of laziness and arrogance, sprinkled lightly with a little Confusion sauce. That article may lighten the sauce component just a bit.

I am, of course, guilty of this myself. There have been nagging voices in my head telling me that I really need to shape up and at least do the minimums as that Unicode article suggests, but laziness and arrogance have kept me away..

FORTRAN—the "infantile disorder"—, by now nearly 20 years old, is hopelessly inadequate for whatever computer application you have in mind today: it is now too clumsy, too risky, and too expensive to use. (Edsger W. Dijkstra)
