Unicode Technical Notes provide for the
publication of information that may be of interest to
implementers of the Unicode Standard or users of Unicode
programs. The available Technical Notes are listed in the
contents bar to the left.
As opposed to Unicode
Technical Reports, Technical Notes are not approved by the Unicode
Technical Committee, and cannot be part of the
Unicode Standard. Publication of these Notes does not
imply endorsement by the Unicode Consortium.
Technical Notes are versioned in the same way as
Technical Reports, so each file version is stable for reference;
no content changes are made after a Note is posted. If a Note is
withdrawn, then the last version of the note will describe the
status, and whether the content will be maintained elsewhere
(such as in a Technical Note or on another site).
The Notes are approved by the Notes subcommittee
of the Unicode Technical Committee. The criteria for submission
are that in the judgment of that committee, the subject matter
is useful, is related to use of The Unicode Standard, and does
not contravene The Unicode Standard or the Unicode Technical
Over time, the Notes subcommittee may request
that the author update material for consistency with later
version of the Unicode Standard or Unicode Technical Reports, or
to correct errors. The author is responsible for this
maintenance of the Note; if the author does not meet this
responsibility the Note may be withdrawn. A Note can also be
withdrawn for any other reason by the Unicode Technical
Committee or the Unicode Consortium officers.
Submissions must be in HTML using the Technical
Note Template, and must pass the W3C
HTML Validator. It should be sent to the Unicode
office as an email attachment. The content will have joint
copyright by the authors and the Unicode consortium. The
material in Notes may be used in any future publications by the
Unicode Consortium, including Unicode Technical Reports.
