Print-On-Demand Survey for Unicode 6.0
The Unicode Standard 5.2 is now online only and can be printed freely.
For the next edition of the standard, Unicode 6.0, the editorial committee would like to find out whether people are interested in the ability to obtain bound copies of the standard in the form of individually available volumes covering different selections of the text and code charts. (Unlike in the past, Unicode 6.0 will not be published as a single volume by an outside publisher.)
If there is sufficient interest, the text and code charts could be delivered using Print-on-Demand technology. To prepare for that option, the editorial committee would need to do some restructuring.
In either case, users would be able to print any part of the online files free of charge; the print-on-demand option would simply offer a convenient way to purchase bound copies of some or all sections of the standard.
We have created a very brief survey that gives some options and estimates costs for a print-on-demand version of Unicode 6.0. We would appreciate your feedback. There is also space on the form for comments. Feel free to forward this link to others who are not on the Unicode mailing lists, but who might be interested. The survey will close on February 24.
