Re: Java/Unicode brain damage


Looks relevant ... takes that "char is int" approach I mentioned
a while back.  (And I think it's also appropriate to mention the
API now visible as org.apache.crimson.util.XmlChars, which
has a bunch of static XML-oriented methods ... hasn't been taught
about blueberry yet, natch!)
