BrowserUk,

WOW, I like that shorthand format, N/(N/a*)* and N/(n/a*)* , look very flexible for future encoding/decoding uses.

    Until you apply some form of encode/decoding operation to a file or data stream, anything you read is just a bunch of bytes.
This was my take also!
    Unicode is a f*** up!
Agreed! I haven't looked at this much, but the spec says '22 bits', but Perl code seems to use '24 bits' for each character with the high-order bits being '00'. Whether other implementations do the same I don't know, but seems like too much room for mis-interpretation.

Thank you
