Hi all,

The Mathematica Book says that Mathematica support Unicode Characters.
And the MathLink tells that a Unicode character in Mathematica is a
16-bit. But the latest Unicode Standard uses 32-bit to encode a
character. It seems to me that Mathematica's Unicode support is
outdated, based on an old version of Unicode Standard, which only
contains lass than 65536 characters. Will next version of Mathematica
use 32-bit encoding? Or am I wrong?
