X.Net Internationalization and Unicode Adaptor (xIUA)
http://www.xnetinc.com/xiua/ Release 3.1 for ICU 1.8.1 was completed on
10/10/01.  This is code was derived from code that X.Net, Inc. developed to
help its clients implement Unicode support using ICU as its base code.  It
was published as open source code by X.Net, Inc.

This code is intended to be used to develop your own customized ICU
interface. Not all applications can use this approach but for the
applications that can use the code, it can save considerable time and
effort.  This code was not developed or sponsored by the ICU development
team.  This code also contains a set of extensions like web support, locale
management and UTF-8 support that may or may not be applicable to your
applications.  For example, most ICU applications will perform better by
converting everything to UTF-16 as ICU was designed so UTF-8 support can be
unneeded extra code.  Implementers are expected to remove code that is not
needed and add their own in-house extensions.  Because the code or portions
of the code can be used in different ways by different applications it is
not practical to use newer versions of xIUA whenever a new release of ICU
comes out.

To make it easy for people who use code from xIUA, X.Net, Inc. is providing
upgrade instructions that will identify what code has to be changed to
migrate to ICU 2.0.  To receive xIUA upgrade instructions you can email
mailto:xiuainfo@xnetinc.com .
