The emergence of a single standard from a welter of conflicting precedents depends upon two solutions:selection or development of an adequate and logical standard, phasing out (or peaceful coexistence with) the old varieties. This paper deals with the latter problem and proposes the mechanics for a solution in the area of character codes, as represented by bit combinations.
