    The Unicode Technical Committee has posted two new Public Review Issues
    today. Details are on the following web page:


    The closing date for both of these issues is August 9, 2005.

    Please see the page for links to discussion and relevant documents.
    Briefly, the new issues are:

    69 Proposed Update UAX #24, Script Names

    This is an initial update for Unicode 5.0.0 which proposes the addition of
    an appendix of iconic script indicators, derivative from the usage of last
    resort font missing glyph forms. Additional updates will be needed to
    reflect the planned additions of scripts to 5.0.0. Those will be in a
    subsequent draft.

    70 Proposed Draft UTS #37, Registration of Ideographic Variation Sequences

    The UTC approved the development of a Unicode Technical Standard
    establishing a registry of variation sequences for Ideographic characters.
    The UTC recognizes that the needs of various user communities for such
    variation sequences cannot be accommodated by a single, unified collection
    of sequences. The purpose of the registry is to ensure that multiple
    collections can coexist without compromising the interchangeability of
    texts using them. This proposed draft Unicode Technical Standard describes
    the operation of the registry.

    If you have comments for official UTC consideration, please post them by
    submitting your comments through our feedback & reporting page:

    If you wish to discuss issues on the Unicode mail list, then please use

    discussion comments on the Unicode mail list are not automatically recorded
    as input to the UTC. You must use the reporting link above to generate
    comments for UTC consideration.
