I reforward a message sent by Rustam Aliyev writing to me because I wrote
about this "new" Azerbaijani Manat currency symbol in... 2008 when it was
introduced. Since then nothing has happened and the symbol is still not in
any pending formal proposal.

He tried to send this message to the list but his message was not
delivered, and so he asks me for help about this issue. He provides
additional prrofs of usage. See below.

Thanks. Philippe.

 Hello Philippe,

I'm contacting you regarding your activity in Unicode group. I noticed that
you sent email regarding Azerbaijani Manat symbol back in 2008 and
therefore contacting you directly.

I subscribed and sent following email to the unicode mail list. However, it
wasn't delivered. It looks like moderation which lasts almost for a month
not yet processed.

I was wondering if you could help me with delivering this message to the
mail list and also was wondering what is required to for submission.

Many thanks,

Azerbaijani Manat Symbol was discussed few times on the list (e.g.
http://unicode.org/mail-arch/unicode-ml/y2008-m04/0055.html), but due to
low demand never made its way to the Currency Symbols (

Azerbaijani Manat symbol was introduced in 2006 but wasn't really used
until recently. At the moment, it is possible to see symbol used almost
everywhere - outdoor banners, scratch cards with monetary value, web pages
(see http://i.imgur.com/w22cii2.jpg http://i.imgur.com/8TkSKs7.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/WPH7irG.png). Therefore, we think it's time to add this
to Unicode (actually, we are a bit late).

I went briefly through the guidelines and in accordance with
recommendations sending email to this list first. Also, I noticed that
proposal guidelines have broken links to the proposal forms (
http://www.unicode.org/pending/proposals.html). I would appreciate if
anyone could provide templates for this or share previous applications.

Many thanks,
Rustam Aliyev.
