I recently conducted an informal poll designed to get the answer to the
below. I thought it might be interesting to poll a few lists as well to
broaden the sample.
If you are interested, send my your reply *without copying the list* -
want to influence anybody else ;-) For the same reason, it would be nice
could refrain from sending comments about the poll to the list until
I'll compile any answers I get within the next 72 hours and post
whatever results I can
glean, compounded with my other poll results by, say, end of week.
I will also forward the results to the Unicode Consortium's Editorial
who, I am sure, would be keenly interested in the results.
a) if you need to look up something in the Unicode Standard do you primarily
use the book or the online files?
b) do you have access to a hard copy (book edition) of the Unicode Standard?
c) who owns it (yourself, co-worker, departmental copy, library (checked
out, on-site copy))?
d) what version of the standard?
e) what would you find a compelling reason to get the latest hardcopy
(including a future 5.0 edition, if you are already using 4.0).
The following question can be answered yes/no or often/rarely/never
f) do you use the online code charts?
g) do you use the online PDF files for the text?
h) do you use the online Unicode character database?
i) do you use the online UAXs, UTSs, or UTRs? Which ones?
j) if you have access to the book, did you ever use the CD-ROM?
k) any comments, thoughts or observations concerning this poll, the
standard, or whatever.
