These and other software luminaries recognize that Unicode has become an indispensable tool for supporting an increasingly global marketplace (see inside for more acclaim). A comprehensive system of standards for representing alphabets throughout the world, Unicode is the basis for modern programming-- Windows, XML, Python, PERL, Mac OS, Linux--and every major search engine and browser in operation today.
New to Unicode Version 5.0
* A stable foundation for Unicode Security Mechanisms
* Property data for the Unicode Collation Algorithm and Common Locale Data Repository
* Improvements to the Unicode Encoding Model for UTF-8
* Rigorous stability of case folding and identifiers for improved interoperability and backward compatibility--enabling additional new ways to optimize code
* A systematic framework for improved text processing for greater reliability--covering combining characters, Unicode strings, line breaking, and segmentation
This new edition of Unicode's official reference manual has been substantially updated to document the latest revisions to the Unicode Standard, with hundreds of pages of new information. It includes major revisions to text, figures, tables, definitions, and conformance clauses, and provides clear and practical answers to common questions. For the first time, the book contains the Unicode Standard Annexes, which specify vital processes such as text normalization and identifier parsing.
These improvements are so important that Version 5.0 is the basis for Microsoft's Vista generation of operating systems, and is included in upgrade plans for Google, Yahoo!, and ICU, to name but a few.
