Abstract:
			
The Unicode Consortium announces the publication of The Unicode
Standard Version 4.0, which now defines over 96,000 characters for the
languages of the world, and provides detailed properties and
algorithms for computer systems. With Unicode 4.0, additional
characters needed by linguists for phonetic transcription are
included. As a significant step towards the digital preservation of
world heritage, this new version encodes characters for Linear B and
other ancient Mediterranean alphabets. At the same time, it expands
support for modern minority languages. This removes a major barrier
that has prevented people from using their own languages on computers.

The accompanying CD-ROM includes the text of all the Unicode Standard
Annexes and the entire Unicode Character Database.
