Unicode is more than just wide ASCII. One of the principal 
operations on Unicode is to normalize text. This is 
often known as text "decomposition" or "composition". In 
decomposition, composed accented characters such as  "��" are 
converted into two characters, in this case "o" followed by a 
separate umlaut character.  In composition, the reverse occurs. 
This is described in UTR #15. 
A limited normalizer class is a part of JDK 1.1, but it is not 
exposed to clients. This class needs to be enhanced and made public.  XML, JavaScript, and other standards will require this capability.
