There are other issues involved too.
For instance, normalisation.
Also the question of reading files - will the runtime auto-detect the
encoding of the file, and translate to Unicode? How will applications
find out what the original encoding was? How will applications be able
to set the encoding for output files (for instance, ans XSLT
processor, which I am planning to write in Haskell, must honour a
request to write the output file in either utf-8 or utf-16)?
I suspect a Unicode library will be needed.
