Yup. And on the disk that comes with the book version. However, it's
still annoying that Emacs won't support it directly: and of course,
I'd have to convert it *back* into EUC, JIS, or whatever before I
could pull it back into Emacs again...

These were hardly in general use: they exist in historical documents
primarily. However, this is still important, and Unicode has already
made "extensive additions of CJK characters to cover dictionaries and
historic usage." in version 4.0.

Yup. As I said, I was just speaking of Emacs. :(
