  • Next message: Jörg Knappen: "Re: Public Review Issues Update"

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


    Briefly the new issues are:

    40 Encoding of Latin Capital and Small Letter "At"

    LATIN CAPITAL LETTER AT and LATIN SMALL LETTER AT are used as orthographic
    characters in the Koalib language of Sudan. Although similar in appearance
    to COMMERCIAL AT, LATIN SMALL LETTER AT should have different character
    properties. The main concern is the similarity in appearance of LATIN SMALL
    LETTER AT to COMMERCIAL AT. There are potential implications for Internet
    protocols that use "@".

    41 Encoding of INVISIBLE LETTER

    UTC is seeking feedback regarding a proposal to encode "INVISIBLE LETTER"
    to serve as an unambiguous base letter for combining marks in isolation.
    The character properties would be specifically designed to aid in
    processing. Details are provided in an accompanying document.

    The closing date for comments on both issues is 2004/11/08.

    If you have comments for official UTC consideration, please post them by
    submitting your comments through our feedback & reporting page:
