In case you are also interested in the status of Latin-0. >----------------Begin Forwarded Message----------------< Date: Sun, 16 Nov 1997 20:18:52 -0800 (Pacific Standard Time) From: Ienup Sung <is@dakota-76> Subject: Re: (i18n.383) Latin 0 current proposal and ISO/IEC 9995-3 international keyboard standard To: =?us-ascii?Q?Alain_LaBont=E9_-_2?= <> Thanks for the additional info.
