Using English in England makes sense too, but don't expect everybody
to be able to understand your code.

Actually, I meant needing an editor that can work with IME or similar to produce/input and read (is: show) the Chinese characters. Wasn't it that Swahili, Esperanto and English were the only languages completely supported by US-ASCII?

Btw, I am talking of ASCII like encodings here. Bigger trouble strikes when going to EBCDIC, which is valid in XML as an encoding and is not compatible with US-ASCII, messing even the "lower" characters.... I wished that Unicode had matured in 1960....
