#101 Proposal to Encode an External Link Sign

The UTC has received a proposal to encode an EXTERNAL LINK SIGN as a
character. The proposed symbol marks external links within web pages (i.e.
links which lead to another site, contrary to internal links which lead to
another page within the same site or domain). The submitted proposal itself
is available for review, and some detailed questions for reviewers are
presented in the background document.

If you have comments for official UTC consideration, please post them by
