Re: Accessing the WG2 document register

Anshu, I simply treat WG2 as a bureaucratic exercise bolted onto the
actual work that Unicode does. In 20 years, I have never once had
occasion to refer to ISO 10646, while I refer to Unicode every day. When
I visit clients, none of them talk about implementing ISO 10646; they
all talk about implementing Unicode.

My recommendation is simply to ignore WG2 and act as if it doesn't
exist. It already might as well not, and with its policies is only
likely to become more and more irrelevant.

Getting Spiekermann to not like Helvetica is like training
a cat to stay out of water. But I'm impressed that people
know who to ask when they want to ask someone to not like
Helvetica. That's progress. -- David Berlow
