FPDAM 1 to ISO/IEC 9995-3 for *international* keyboard support of the EURO SIGN

From: Alain LaBonté - 3 (alb@sct.gouv.qc.ca)
Date: Tue Dec 09 1997 - 10:42:04 EST


as per a resolution 7 of the first meeting of JTC1/WG5 (formerly known as
JTC1/SC18/WG9) held in Cupertino at Apple's headquarters in November, could
you please take appropriate measures for initiating FPDAM processing of the
short annexed document as soon as possible. This is urgent matter, as the
implementation of the EURO is scheduled for 1999-01-01, and we need to have
international consensus on this by the next meeting of JTC1/WG5, at least
to set the direction for DAM approval. If ballot could be initiated before
Christmas with the minimum delays involved and require that countries cast
their vote as far as possible before the next JTC1/WG5 planned for
1998-05-11 (in Reykjavík), that would be ideal.

Thanks a lot.

[Alain] :
This is of course a mistake. You can't directly go to DIS processing, it
has to be FPDAM processing (equivalent of FCD ballot). But that mistake
apart, I'll do that.
