Project UTF-8 Pages
* <a href="../BadSoftware/">BadSoftware</a>. Contrary to what Markus Kuhn is doing with his <a href="http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/unicode.html">UTF-8 and Unicode FAQ</a>, we will be trying to maintain a list of software that doesn’t support UTF-8. Since UTF-8 is _the_ character set standard, we consider every piece of software that doesn’t support UTF-8 to be very old-fashioned and out of date. * <a href="../BMP-Only/">BMP-Only</a>. A list of software that supports only the <a href="../BMP/">BMP</a> of Unicode, and thus lacks full Unicode support. * <a href="../Fonts/">Fonts</a>. A list of free and non-free fonts supporting various ranges of Unicode. * <a href="../unicode-translation/">unicode-translation</a>. A subproject of project UTF-8 with the goal of translating Unicode character names and other data into many languages using the gettext framework.
