[Python-Dev] Unicode howto in the works - feedback appreciated
Wed, 1 May 2002 01:10:00 -0500
I began working on a Unicode HOWTO a few weeks ago, got a little ways o=
then ignored it until this morning. I added a little bit more to it th=
decided I should get some feedback. You can view it at
Pick your favorite format.
This document is written from the perspective of a dumb American progra=
who has ignored Unicode for too long, not a savvy international program=
who's had to consider multiple character sets for awhile. Consequently=
content is going to be a lot different than if Fredrik, Martin or Marc-=
wrote it. I'm mostly concerned with recovering from previous bad decis=
or dealing with implicit encoding information.
Consider it a start. Feedback welcome.
