This is the one book all developers using Unicode must have.
The core specification gives the general principles, requirements for conformance, and guidelines for implementers. The code charts show representative glyphs for all the Unicode characters. The Unicode Standard Annexes supply detailed normative information about particular aspects of the standard. The Unicode Character Database supplies normative and informative data for implementers to allow them to implement the Unicode Standard.
The Unicode Standard is closely connected with other Unicode software globalization standards in such key areas as collation (used for sorting, searching, and matching), character set conversion, regular expressions, and the interchange and registration of locale data for the world's languages and local cultural conventions [CLDR]. It has been further significantly augmented by several new Unicode Technical Standards that provide recommendations and data to assist in secure implementation of Unicode, and to establish the registration mechanism for Ideographic Variation Sequences needed by the publishing industry for Chinese and Japanese.About the Authors
