Join the club!

Seriously, I recommend the book "Unicode Demystified".

On the one hand, it cleared up a lot of things I thought
I understood but didn't.

On the other hand, it revealed large complex aspects of
Unicode that I was too ignorant of to know how ignorant
I was.

On the gripping hand, it is several major releases out of
date, and things have only got worse.  But it *is* a great
foundation.
