    The Unicode Technical Committee has posted several new issues for public
    review and comment. Details are on the following web page:


    Review periods for the new items close on January 30, 2006.

    Please see the page for links to discussion and relevant documents.
    Briefly, the new issues are:

    82 Representation of Gurmukhi Double Vowels
    In older Gurmukhi, some texts use two vowel signs on a single consonant;
    for example, one can find ga with both the oo and u vowel signs. A priori,
    this can be represented in Unicode using two different sequences. Details
    of a proposal regarding this situation is found in the background document.

    83 Changing Glyph for U+047C/U+047D Cyrillic Omega with Titlo
    UTC has received information indicating that the glyphs for U+047C and
    U+047D should be changed.

    84 Proposed Update to UAX #29: Text Boundaries
    A number of changes have been made to simplify implementations and cover
    edge cases in the rules.

    85 Proposed Update to UAX #31: Identifier and Pattern Syntax
    Clarifying text has been added for ideographs and the use of additional
    characters in identifiers.
