The Internationalization Working Group has published a Group Note of Unicode in XML and other Markup Languages. The Unicode Standard defines the universal character set. Its primary goal is to provide an unambiguous encoding of the content of plain text, ultimately covering all languages in the world, but also major text-based notational systems for science, technology, music, and scholarship. This document contains guidelines on the use of the Unicode Standard in conjunction with markup languages such as XML.
