The paragraph reads:

The most _current major version of the Unicode
                   standard_ contains 49,194 distinct coded characters.
                   These characters cover the principal written
                   languages of the Americas, Europe, the Middle East,
                   Africa, India, Asia, and the Pacific Basin. Certain
                   technical reports are approved and part of 3.0. For a
                   list, see the _Technical Reports_ page. Note that
                   Version 3.0 is amended by an update version,
                   _Unicode 3.0.1_.

so the note is at the bottom ("_" indicates a link).

I am not criticizing your message -- if you missed it, certainly a lot of
other people will! We will have to rewrite the paragraph for clarity.
