In response and to support Daniƫl:

Also, remember unicode is/are a computerlanguage specific 
specification(s): you may assume that a lot of thought has gone into it 
to be able to use it with programming languages. That was the design 
goal. The specification is, alas, rather complex but it contains every 
bit of information to be able to implement high level handling without 
breaking properly designed older high level languages. This goes at the 
expense of lower level string handling (and asm constructs that were 
introduced just for string handling in the instruction sets of most 
modern processors!) . I guess that is just what we call progress.
