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
http://www.unicode.org/versions/Unicode4.1.0/ is to
http://www.unicode.org/charts/, i.e. always the latest version, and I
think it always has been. And the links from both
http://www.unicode.org/charts/symbols.html 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
http://www.unicode.org/versions/enumeratedversions.html to "The Unicode
Standard, Version 4.0" now points to
http://www.unicode.org/versions/Unicode4.1.0/. The link to "Update
Reference Unicode 4.0.1" correctly points to
http://www.unicode.org/versions/Unicode4.0.1/, but the "*Online Code
Charts*" link from this is still to http://www.unicode.org/charts/ 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.
