The Unicode consortium has released a proposal on Clarification on
Consolidation of the function of Zero Width Joiner in Indic scripts,
from Peter Constable of Microsoft for public review.
The document is available at:-
Responses to the document should be posted before 3rd August, 2004,
using the following URI:-
Discussing it on this (or any other) mailing list is of no use,
Unicode will look only at responses submitted through the above URI.
Of course, if we propose to arrive at a consensus amongst ourselves,
and make a joint proposal to the Unicode consortium, we can discuss it
IMHO, people who work on (or are otherwise concerned with) rendering
engines should pay particular attention to this proposal.
At the moment, I'm still studying what this proposal is about; and its
effect on Malayalam.
Kindly circulate this to anybody interested in Indic languages. I've
already posted this the the indlinux forum.
