The portable (and much ported) ICU library, free software from
IBM, is a dominant Unicode support library.  Of interest to anyone
building internationalized software or web pages.

For those who may be interested in using ICU for software globalization, IBM
offering a webcast tomorrow; I'm forwarding the blurb below. BTW, attendance

An Introduction to ICU (International Components for Unicode)

Software globalization used to be limited to major operating systems and
applications. Today, all major companies need to have an international web
presence, and few software applications can afford to be limited to domestic
markets. Unicode is a key building block in globalized systems, but it is
a significant effort to build software to deal successfully with the
requirements of all the different languages around the world.

IBM's ICU library provides the most powerful Unicode software globalization
support available -- for free! Learn how ICU helps to solve your problems in
globalizing software for world languages and cultures. To sign up, go to the
