Character sets towards a standard solution

Character sets towards a standard solution Character coding systems such as ASCII and EBCDIC are unable to deal with the worldwide range of characters and so possible solutions, such as ISO 10646 and Unicode, involving 16bit codes have been suggested. The paper examines how libraries deal with multilingual character sets and describes work being undertaken on the definition of a basic European character set as part of the National Bibliographies on CDROM project being funded as part of the Commission of the European Communities Action Plan for Libraries. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Program Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Character coding systems such as ASCII and EBCDIC are unable to deal with the worldwide range of characters and so possible solutions, such as ISO 10646 and Unicode, involving 16bit codes have been suggested. The paper examines how libraries deal with multilingual character sets and describes work being undertaken on the definition of a basic European character set as part of the National Bibliographies on CDROM project being funded as part of the Commission of the European Communities Action Plan for Libraries.
