I had another look at the Unicode::* stuff today, and found a new
Unicode::MapUTF8 module that provides a common interface to Unicode::Map8,
Unicode::Map (including the important Chinese encodings), and Jcode
(Japanese encodings).  I think I would switch to using this for the WDG
HTML Validator except that EUC_KR support seems to be missing, and so I'd
still need to bother with CJKVconv.pl or something similar.
