I just got a flyer about a Unicode conference coming up in Tokyo. The
flyer says, "Technical writers may also benefit," from attending. So
far, I know that Unicode is a proposed 16-bit character encoding
standard for information interchange. It would make communication/
data exchange between countries, particularly the Asian and
Pacific-Rim countries, much easier.

Since this is the first that I have heard about it, I thought I would
ask my fellow writer type folks, what do you know about Unicode or
ISO 10646?
