    For what it is worth, I concur with Michael's answers
    to these questions.

    And there is no *Unicode* beta page for Unicode 5.2 as yet.
    That will not appear until sometime after the conclusion
    of the final ballot resolution for Amendment 6 -- presumably
    sometime in late spring of 2009.

    Nor do I on this matter. But I agree that the additional characters
    under ballot for Aiton and Phake in no way disturb the
    overall model for Myanmar as represented in Unicode 5.1,
    and I see no reason to stop localization development based
    on Unicode 5.1 at this point simply because a few more
    characters are under consideration and because someone is
    developing font(s) to support them.
