"uni code"? oh you mean a bunch of grad students threw together a shitty application that breaks every five minutes?


@er1n Oh, *that's* why we're on version 11 and somehow it keeps getting harder to understand.


@aschmitz @er1n oh hang on nevermind google showed 3 stars instead of 4.2 for some reason?

@wxcafe @er1n Yeah, to be honest, despite the encoding being occasionally a pain to understand and sometimes a source of vulnerabilities when poorly implemented, the books are pretty neat to read through. There are good descriptions of a lot of things you might wonder about, and brief histories of a lot of scripts.

@aschmitz @er1n yeah honestly I'd be happy to read them but like

@wxcafe @aschmitz @er1n Personally I prefer Computers and Typesetting Vol E.

@blp @wxcafe @er1n Ah, I don't have a copy, but I did at least consider becoming a TUG member earlier today after finding a very helpful TUGboat article.
