The Unicode Standard provides a unique code number for every character in electronic text, no matter what the platform, no matter what the application, no matter what the language. It is required for XML and is at the core of modern software products. Unicode 4.0 contains 96,248 characters covering languages of the world. The Unicode Standard contains extensive descriptions of each writing system, as well as definitions of character properties and detailed conformance requirements. It is the complete and definitive user's guide for novices and experts alike.
