Re: [xml-dev] nextml

It's also a common misconception that Unicode is a 16-bit character set;
it defines more than 65536 characters, and "surrogate pairs" in
languages like Java make utf16 as complex as utf8; processing characters
in either utf-8 or ucs-32 are the most common choices outside the Java
world as far as I can tell.

UTF-16 is very common as an internal representation. Not just Java, also .NET, JavaScript, Windows, OS X, Symbian, IE, Mozilla, Opera, OpenOffice.org, Qt.
