A reminder. Unicode 5.1 is bringing Egyptian Transliteration characters
LATIN CAPITAL LETTER EGYPTOLOGICAL ALEF, LATIN SMALL LETTER EGYPTOLOGICAL
ALEF, LATIN CAPITAL LETTER EGYPTOLOGICAL AIN and LATIN SMALL LETTER
EGYPTOLOGICAL AIN. The EGYPTOLOGICAL YOD is still an unresolved point but
nevertheless the new characters allow for a useable system.
Some examples of transliterations (using 5.1 codes) can be found at my new
EGPZ Word List project (www.egpz.com/resources/egpz_wordlist.htm) - I expect
to have 20,000 words, or thereabouts, with transliterations online in
December (hieroglyphs will take somewhat longer).
I am interested in hearing of fonts that aim to support these new characters
for 5.1 (and the handful of other characters used for transliteration). I
would like to list these on www.egpz.com <http://www.egpz.com/> .
