Script Encoding Initiative Contributions

The Consortium is particularly grateful to the work of the Script Encoding Initiative (SEI), under the direction of Dr. Deborah Anderson. The SEI project, located in the department of Linguistics at the University of California at Berkeley, has undertaken the important work of preparing proposals for encoding for less-commonly used scripts and those of scholarly or historic interest. The SEI organization has engaged with the user communities, prepared proposals, provided fonts, and shepherded many proposals successfully through both the Unicode Technical Committee and the JTC1/SC2/WG2 ISO/IEC 10646 standardization processes.

The new scripts, symbol sets and other repertoire additions proposed by SEI and published in the Unicode Standard are shown in the table below, organized by Unicode version. Acknowledgements for individual authors of specific SEI proposals are given in the list of Contributors to The Unicode Standard.
