Does any one have any favorite web resources or teaching materials for
introducing Unicode to the uninitiated? Things that are fairly free from
technical jargon. How about a curriculum, teaching assignments or tests?
We in SIL are trying to create e-courses on Unicode, for different level
users, from General Users to IT Support Personnel. Any suggestions or
materials would be greatly appreciated.
By the way, the 8 bit fonts in the documents that started this thread are
some of our old SIL fonts; I cringe every time I see people still using
them, but awareness is hard to create. If anyone reading this doesn't know,
a variety of free, excellent quality Unicode fonts designed for linguistics
and minority language applications are available from the SIL Scripts
