    I would like to discuss the possibility of adding letters from the
    Karen alphabet to the Burmese script block in unicode. It is my
    intention to begin authorship of a Karen education syllabus and to do
    this I need the foundations of a universal writing code.

    Mr Christian Bauer appears to have done some work in this area and I
    would welcome communication with him and other people who may have done
    some work in this area.

    The second interest I have is in the development of word processing
    tools that utilize the contents of unicode. I use a Macintosh with OSX
    installed. The basic language packages are very good but they do not
    have the Burmese script included. I would like to develop a writing
    tool that is similar to the Japanese ことえりwhere phonetics are typed in
    and drop down windows offer suggested scripts or fonts.

    I may be contacted via email at hbatterham@mac.com and I look forward
    to further communications.
