Hello Peter Kirk,

Quoting only part of the above, you have written:

I was explicitely talking about the things that *can* be changed, viz. the an-
notations for individual characters (TUS, chapter 16), the description of the
individual scripts (TUS, chapters 7 through 15), and the Unicode Character
Database. I think, every conceivable effort should be undertaken to get these
All of these are on-line (one or two clicks from
<http://www.unicode.org/versions/Unicode4.1.0/>), so you can easily assess them.
Unfortunately, this whole thread has focussed on the Unicode Character Names;
however, these are only a small part of TUS. The annotations, e. g., are placed
next to them, yet they have apparently escaped the attention of some contributors
to this thread.
