I'm still not convinced that this is our responsibility. I can try
looking for some stable and informative links -- Alan Wood's outstanding
pages at http://www.alanwood.net/unicode/ leap to mind -- but as we said
before, this is unlikely to be of much use to a library user who isn't
allowed to install fonts or software.
(I am still willing to bet that CE's library machine has Internet
Explorer 4.0 or later, and can thus view a local UTF-8 file.)

I don't oppose this, but if you want to keep the version with the hex
NCRs, do you really still need the links to UTF-8 fonts and viewers?
