Members and Staff
The technical content of the Unicode Standard is determined by the Unicode Technical Committee members: Full, Institutional, Supporting, and Associate Members, as well as Individual and Liaison Members, and invited experts.
The Officers of the Unicode Consortium maintained the stability policies, established liaison relationships, managed the business of the Consortium, and maintained relationships with the worldwide community of Unicode users.
The support of member companies has been crucial to The Unicode Standard, Version 6.0. Adobe Systems, Inc., generously supplied the licenses for the Minion fonts, Adobe® Framemaker ® 9.0, and Adobe® Creative Suite 4 Premium, which were used to create the text and graphics of the core specification. Particular thanks for facilities, equipment, and resources are owed to Apple Inc. and Microsoft Corporation. Apple provided much needed hardware both for our Senior Editor and in support of the Unicode Han Database. We especially wish to thank Microsoft for its generous support in providing office space, as well as licenses for Visual Studio 2010 and Windows 7. PdfLib GmbH provided PDFlib+PDI 6.0.3 for Microsoft Windows and PDFlib TET (Text Extraction Toolkit) 2.1.0 for Microsoft Windows, and Asmus, Inc. provided custom-built software based
on these libraries and used for the post-production processing of PDFs for the code charts. Finally, ongoing work on CJK encoding was supported by the generous provision of licenses of Wenlin 4.0 by Thomas Bishop.
The development of the Unicode Standard, Version 6.0 would not have been possible without the support of the office staff of the Unicode Consortium, and the work of Mike Kernaghan, as operational manager of the Unicode office. We thank Magda Danish, who helped with Version 6.0 in countless ways, from hosting Editorial Committee meetings, editing Unicode Standard Annex #41, Common References for Unicode Standard Annexes, and updating many web pages to being the public face for our many administrative functions. We also thank Sarasvati, who minded the mailing lists.
