Can we define standard (or recommended) conversion (mapping table)
between Unicode(UCS-2) and such encodings used in XML?

I know that "Japanese profile" in KAISETSU of TR X 0008-1998
define encodings used in japanese XML document, but it doesn't
define conversions between encodings. I think it's not enough
to guarantee exchange.

I'm sure that no conversion have no problem, but better standard
reduce troubles, doesn't it? 

I've used sample XML documents in Japanese in SGML Cafe. Thanks!(^^)>Murata
