Subject: iso 10646 and unicode

JTC1/SC2 met in Rennes, France last week and approved a motion that
a new DIS 10646 be sent out to national bodies. This means that
UNICODE and ISO 10646 are integrated, i.e. that for the most part
UNICODE will be distributed in a cover of ISO. The DIS will be sent
to national bodies in January and the voting will take place within 4
months. It is to be expected that ISO IS 10646 will be official at the
end of 1992.

I will place a more extensive discussion of the implications of this on
the listservers of humanist and tei-l at the end of this week.
