    It was in the previous list (see the online HTML table 2).
    Who decides for the addition of scripts in ISO-15924? I thought there was a
    separate technical commity and that you were just the bookkeeper of the
    decisions made by this sub-commitee. It can't be Unicode's UTC alone, as there
    are already codes for bibliographic references that are not (and will never) be
    encoded separately in Unicode,so I suppose that there are librarian or
    publishers members with which you have to discuss, independantly of the work of
    Unicode, which should only be the registrar for these codes. May be there's
    still no formal procedure, and for now the codes are maintainable without lots
    of administration.

    Do you want a script that generate HTML tables from the reference text file?
    I'm not an expert in Perl, but my knowledge of PHP or "awk" is enough to create
    it.
    Or may be a simple Javascript could generate the presentation in browsers.
    I suggest you use a spreadsheet for now to allow sorting or moving columns.

    One final note: there's still a missing closing parenthese in a French name <<
    latin (variante brisťe >> for the Fraktur script.
