In 1994 SC22/WG14 (the ISO working group responsible for C) published
Amendment 1. Most of this document deals with additional librray functions
to handle multi-byte characters.
WG14 is currently working on C9X. There is a proposal on the table
to support the writing of identifiers using characters from
ISO 10646 (it is based on trigraphs, ??/u12345)
The ASCII values have the same value in Unicode. They simply have zero
bytes on the front.
