Hi,

What is the status of Unicode in OpenMCL? A google search turned up a 
message to this list from april 2003 saying that 16-bit characters 
should be considered deprecated but that no significant work to support 
unicode has happened. How can I help?

Here's a presentation about how Python dealt with this issue;

Tim Bray has also written some useful essays on this subject:

  http://tbray.org/ongoing/When/200x/2003/04/26/UTF
  http://www.tbray.org/ongoing/When/200x/2003/04/30/JavaStrings

Java's String, Character, and char have a lot of great lessons to teach 
(Wow, what a nice way to put that).

HTH,
Steve
