<p>I'm sorry, but I can't tell whether you are being intentionally
contrarian or simply dense. To say that <a
href="">Unicode</a> does not provide the basis for
<em>markup</em> is the same as saying that Unicode does not provide the
basis for English or C++. XML is <em>explicitly</em> based on Unicode. And
I have not a clue as to what you mean by a "non-Unicode file format" in
this context.</p>

<p>If you want to invent your own system of markup (using Unicode, just as
W3C has), no one is stopping you, but I for one will not be paying
