It may be slightly off topic, but do you mind expanding on that last 
line? I would be interested.

IANA character encoding spec I found at 
ftp://ftp.isi.edu/in-notes/iana/assignments/character-sets do not 
explicitly name UTF-16, but does name several flavors of Unicode(?):


Which is an alias for UTF-16?
