Jason and Gregory,
	I do not know this issue real well, but, it is my understanding that
most screen-readers are looking for Unicode, but that there are two
standards for Unicode, and the best compromise of both is called the Basic
Multilingual Plane?  Are you saying that character code requirements should
state this Basic Multilingual Plane Unicode, (or some other Unicode
standard) should be what is made available to the software and assistive
technology devices?  That we should specify that in relation to what we
consider text?  Or are you talking about something else entirely?  Is it
true that screen-readers are not consistent in whether they are looking for
Unicode or simple ASCII?
