In case you are also interested in the status of Latin-0.

Thanks for the additional info. I remember that you also forwarded info on
the status of Latin-0 at SC2/WG3 that ballots (concurrent NP and FCD) are
going to close in the next weeks. Just wanted to share the info...

] No change is likely to occur except for the EURO SIGN, which will most
] probably come back to the original proposal (it was then replacing the
] CURRENCY SIGN). The current proposal abstract is (I added for you a note
] between parenthseis for 11/01):
] 10/08 LATIN SMALL LETTER S WITH CARON (LETTRE MINUSCULE LATINE S CARON)
] 11/01 (** change likely to 10/04 **) EURO SIGN (SYMBOLE EURO)
] 11/04 LATIN CAPITAL LETTER Z WITH CARON (LETTRE MAJUSCULE LATINE Z CARON)
] 11/08 LATIN SMALL LETTER Z WITH CARON (LETTRE MINUSCULE LATINE Z CARON)
] 11/12 LATIN CAPITAL LIGATURE OE (DIGRAMME SOUDÉ MAJUSCULE LATIN OE)
] 11/13 LATIN SMALL LIGATURE OE (DIGRAMME SOUDÉ MINUSCULE LATIN OE)
] 11/14 LATIN CAPITAL LETTER Y WITH DIAERESIS (LETTRE MAJUSCULE LATINE Y
] Btw the meeting last week of ISO/IEC JTC1/WG5 (ex-JTC1/SC18/WG9) in
] Cupertino, dealing with keyboards, also recommended that the CURRENCY
] SYMBOL key position in ISO/IEC 9995-3 international keyboard be changed to
] EURO SIGN as well (it means that those choosing to implement exact Latin 0
] for the EURO SIGN and which were already supporting the ISO/IEC 9995-3
] keyboard for exact Latin 1 would not even have a change to do, as far as
] coding is concerned (font is another matter, of course).
] The CURRENCY SYMBOL is recommended to be moved in the international
] keyboard on level 3 of the same key where it was in level 2 in the current
] keyboard standard (i.e on the same key as digit 4, in international "group
] 2"; (so far there was *no* character in level 3 of this international
] group). As an editor, I've been instructed to revise a PDAM to ISO/IEC
] 9995-3 which I had already prepared concerning the EURO SIGN issue on
] keyboards and take measures to initiate an international ballot on this
] slight change of the international keyboard standard. Contrary to my
] initial proposal, JTC1/WG5 will *not* make recommendations regarding
] national keyboard layouts (only on the international keyboard standard
] ISO/IEC 9995-3). Consensus was reached on this issue to the satisfaction of
] all parties.
