There isn't a perfect *UnicodeWorld* right now, but in May 2005, the
University of Applied Sciences in
Mainz, Germany, started www.decodeunicode.org
There is an average of 6,500 unique visitors per month (40% from the
USA) and in the first months,
we collected more than 2,500 contributions to more than 1,100
I think: always when there is a new media coming up, people of the old
media confuse old and new.
Television is *not* Cinema -- and an Online-Wiki is *not* the
You can choose the media you want to look at.
To make things clear, the layout of the decode-website distinguishes
between the »official« data
from Unicode in the upper *white* part of the page and the wiki in the
lower, *coloured* part of the page.
Each contribution is reviewed (and perhaps changed) by a moderator.

members of this list would more share there knowledge with 6,500
visitors per month.
If you have suggestions to improve the project, don't hesitate.
