I posted this question because of the the wide spread
interests  in lingistics and language independent
computing - in general. I also posted it when I ran
into problems with Pyhton when a used a variable name
with the upper ASCII (128-255) characters. Python did
not recognize the charcters. Just a matter of
interest.
