An extension of the ISO 9660:1988 ISO
standard file system for CD-ROMs that allows Unicode
characters in file names and other enhancements. Version 1 of
Joliet was released on 1995-05-22.
Joiliet supports file and directory names up to 128 bytes (64
unicode characters) long, directory names with file name
extensions, a directory hierarchy deeper than 8 levels and the
volume recognition sequence
Joliet uses ISO 9660's "supplementary volume descriptor" (SVD)
to specify Unicode files. Use of the previously unused escape
sequence ISO 2022 means that Joliet is backward compatible
with ISO 9660..
