[Sorry if you receive this multiple times; it just means that you are on
all the right mailing lists ... ;-]

Here is some important news for anyone interested in text processing
and character sets:

The new edition of the Unicode standard

   The Unicode Consortium: The Unicode Standard, Version 3.0,
   Addison-Wesley Developers Press, 2000, 1070 p., with CD-ROM,
   ISBN 0-201-61633-5, ~50 USD.


has just been published. You can ordered it now in your favourite
local or online book shop.

If you find yourself involved with fonts, character set conversion, file
formats, text processing and rendering tools, i18n, etc., then the
Unicode 3.0 book is definitely a reference that you want to have on your
desk. Unicode (ISO 10646) is the Universal Character Set that is
expected to replace in the not too far future all other ASCII
extensions. Most other character sets are today already defined in terms
of the ISO 10646 code positions of their characters.

Lots of updated background information on the progressing introduction of
Unicode/UTF-8 on POSIX/GNU/Linux systems is available on
