 Again I have to say  that Unicode hard-coding programns only suppourt
Unicode charset.  On the other hand, CSI have potential to support
other charset as long as system support.  So I'll conclude  what you
are talking can't be CSI.

 It is codeset dependent, obviously.  And that's not CSI.
You miss the point again.  Using internal code is not the point.
Separating codset dependent part from programs is the point, that
I have been telling you in my poor English ;-).

 If I am asked to choose one codeset for now, I'll choose UTF-8(UCS-4). 
I say UTF-8 is the best for now, but not perfect.
