    Note: This announcement was intended to go out a few days ago, but was
    delayed due to e-mail trouble with the recent net-wide virus. We apologize
    for the inconvenience of having such a short review period.

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


    Review period for the new item closes on February 4, 2004.

    Please see the page for links to discussion and relevant documents.
    Briefly, the new issue is:

    28 BIDI Boundary_Neutral Property Value (Closes 2004.02.04)

    The BIDI property value BN is currently aligned with the General Category
    Value Format_Character (Cf), minus, the BIDI specific format characters
    (LRM, RLM, RLE, LRE, RLO, LRO, PDF). The intent of the BN property is to
    allow the BIDI algorithm to ignore invisible, irrelevant characters when
    determining the ordering of the visible characters. The proposal is to
    align the BN property with Default_Ignorable_Code_Point property (DICP)
    instead of Cf, minus again the BIDI specific characters.

    If you have comments for official UTC consideration, please post them by
