    I note that there has been a major revision of this page today (I had to

    It is more compact, and has blocks listed logically and alphabetically
    rather than in raw code point order. Thank you for this.

    I am confused by this. The "*Online Code Charts*" link from is to, i.e. always the latest version, and I
    think it always has been. And the links from both and seem to be to new version 4.1
    code charts e.g. for Tifinagh and for currency symbols. Possibly,
    Philippe, you need to refresh your pages.

    But what is confusing is that the link from to "The Unicode
    Standard, Version 4.0" now points to The link to "Update
    Reference Unicode 4.0.1" correctly points to, but the "*Online Code
    Charts*" link from this is still to which
    is now the Unicode 4.1 version. All of this could be very confusing to
    anyone trying to unravel the history of the standard. But at least it
    does a thorough job of pointing everyone to the latest version.
