    The Unicode Technical Committee has posted several new issues for public
    review and comment. Details are on the following web page:


    Review periods for the new items close on October 27, 2003.

    Please visit the page for links to discussion and relevant documents.

    One new issue is #15 Changing General Category of Braille Pattern Symbols
    to "Letter Other". The UTC has received requests to change the general
    category of the Braille characters to be "Letter other" (Lo) rather than
    "Symbol other" (So), and is seeking comments and information on the Braille
    processing model and existing implementations to help with this decision.
    Please refer to the review page for the rest of the details on this issue.

    Five other new issues are also included for proposed updates and proposed
    drafts of Unicode Technical Reports, Technical Standards, and Unicode
    Annexes. They are:

    #16 Update to UAX #29 Text Boundaries
    #17 UTS #18 Unicode Regular Expressions (change from UTR to UTS)
    #18 Draft UTR #23 The Unicode Character Property Model
    #19 Proposed Draft UTR #30 Character Foldings
    #20 Proposed Draft UTR #31 Identifier and Pattern Syntax
