Description IBM Bug Proxy 2003-11-03 10:03:03 EST
The following has be reported by IBM LTC:  
Unicode Supplementary Support required
IBM products are currently required to support Unicode Supplementary 
Characters.  RHEL 3 currently doesn't have this, so we are asking if
it can be 
added in.

This will also be a requirement for RHEL 4.

I think you need to specify exactly what doesn't work for you.
wchar_t is 32-bit on all arches supported by us, various iconv
conversion modules clearly support surrogate characters
(e.g. UTF-16, UTF-8, UTF-7 etc.).
So what exactly do you mean by that support? We don't AFAIK
ship fonts with those characters (but I'm not sure if we even cover
the whole standard plane).

Ping.  We need specifics.  Otherwise I'll close this bug.

I suggest closing this bug for the time being. Once we have the specifics, we
can open a new bug to track them. Thanks.
