Thanks for the info about C News, Henry.

Apart from this one user-interface restriction, the usual C-derived
requirement that ASCII NUL not appear in text (which is, I think, observed
by all the new character sets)

Actually, Unicode does use NUL octets in ordinary graphic characters.
10646 may do so as well, if it freezes as it stands now. That's why
they invented UTF, which is an alternate format that does not use NUL
and other C0 octet values (0-31).
