    There are no specific plans to date for supporting Phoenician -- nor
    anything else in the still-vapourware Unicode 5.0. I cannot predict at
    this time when it would be supported, other than to say it will be after
    Longhorn at the earliest; nor can I predict whether it will be supported
    in Windows XP.
