Subject: Re: [xmlvoc] Def: character-set

* Erik Wilde
| shouldn't there be a clear distinction between the coded character
| set and the character encoding scheme?

Oh, absolutely. My definition covers "coded character set", but
carefully avoids "character encoding scheme". Notice how there's no
mention of any *specific* byte serialization.

| unicode's division into five different categories
| (http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr17/) may be too much, but i
| believe the ccs/ces separation is a good thing to do and helps
| people to understand unicode better.

I agree fully. Patrick will post about character encoding later. :)
