This list is valuable to me, since I do a fair amount of work with font and
encoding issues. But I am not a member of the Unicode Consortium (for
financial reasons) and would not wish to see this list limited to members of
the Consoritum, if that is what you mean by member-only.
It is truly admirable -- and unusual in today's world -- that experts like
Ken Whistler and others will answer a novice's question. Such answers not
only get the right information into people's hands, but in my view enhance
the reputation of the Unicode Consortium and the work of Unicode in general.
The fact that everyone is welcome on this list seems to me fundamentally
connected with the process of enabling people to use computers easily in
whatever language they need, which (to me) is what Unicode is all about.
Those who know more can usually see where a thread is going and just delete
those they aren't interested in.
