First, before you do, keep in mind these important points which are
often missed by people who ask about CSUR (the ConScript Unicode
(1) CSUR is not a part of the Unicode Standard or ISO/IEC 10646. It is
not run by the Unicode Consortium, the Unicode Technical Committee, or
ISO/IEC JTC1/SC2/WG2, nor by any of its members in any official
(2) Getting a proposal posted at the CSUR site, or even getting it
registered, is not equivalent to getting your characters encoded in
Unicode, even in a preliminary or provisional sense, and should not be
portrayed as such.
(3) Establishing any sort of Private Use Area encoding is not an
automatic stepping-stone or "fast path" to formal encoding. Encoding
characters in the PUA can help to demonstrate popular demand for the
characters, and can help to identify potential issues with processing or
rendering the characters and their solutions. These factors are
discussed and decided individually for each character or set of
characters, regardless of whether a PUA implementation exists.
Characters do not "graduate," nor are they "promoted," from CSUR into
If you wish to prepare a submission, read the introductory text at:
and the naming guidelines at:
Study, and try to follow the format and level of detail of, the Tengwar
Provide a graphical code chart in some popular format, such as GIF.
Don't make your proposal rely on links to Wikipedia or to your personal
Web site in order for readers to see the glyphs.
Send the proposal to the current CSUR curator, Michael Everson, at
<everson at evertype dot com>. Be aware that this is a very
low-priority, volunteer project, and Michael reserves the exclusive
right to register your proposal, to decline to register it, or even to
decline to post it on the CSUR site as "submitted."
