Message 1: Feedback Needed on "Slashed C" and Unicode

Subject: Feedback Needed on "Slashed C" and Unicode


Feedback is requested from linguists regarding the encoding of LATIN
SMALL LETTER C WITH STROKE as a phonetic symbol (Unicode Public Review
Issue #35).

Description: At the February 2004 meeting of the Unicode Technical
Committee, a proposal was considered to encode the phonetic symbol
LATIN SMALL LETTER C WITH STROKE. Some reservation was expressed on
the part of some committee members, however, due to potential legacy
encoding issues. A decision was made to give tentative approval of
this character, but to prepare a public review issue to elicit
feedback on the pros and cons of encoding this character.

The document, written by Peter Constable, is located at:
http://www.unicode.org/review/pr-35.pdf .

Please send feedback via the online form:
http://www.unicode.org/reporting.html or you can send an email message
to me at dwanderssocrates.berkeley.edu for forwarding. Deadline for
comments **8 June 2004**.

This is part of an effort to solicit feedback from users of the
Slashed C. If you have questions, please contact the proposal author,
Peter Constable (peterconmicrosoft.com) or Deborah Anderson
(dwanderssocrates.berkeley.edu).
