Zhang's problem is irrelevant to you, unless you specifically want
support for recently (ie, post-1980) standardized Chinese or Indian
characters. UTF-8 is supported about as well as GNU Emacs does AFAIK,
but we only support a subset of all Unicode characters, and don't
support combining characters yet, only the pre-combined equivalents.
I believe they support a few characters of interest to Europeans that
we don't "out of the box."
I expect that XEmacs 21.5 will make very rapid progress in the next
few months, but this depends very much on Ben Wing, and of course will
be accompanied by substantial instability for a while. Aidan Kehoe
also threatened to work on the "unknown characters problem", so that
may get done quickly even if Ben doesn't do it. (I'd like to work on
it but I don't think I have time to be the lead.)
