What is Unicode

Found a great write up on the Unicode Character set this morning. Enjoyed this excerpt

For some “characters”, Unicode allegedly made a conscious decision not to include them. Unicode will not encode “idiosyncratic, personal, novel, rarely exchanged, or private-use characters, nor logos or graphics”. This is to prevent an inflation of company and product logos from every remote hook of planet Earth cluttering the codespace and font memory.
