(wild applause)

richard: I have been rewriting the tutorial on character encoding

<r12a> http://www.w3.org/International/tutorials/tutorial-char-enc/Overview.en.php

richard: started by tweaking a bit
... but it's grown into a full rewrite
... had a matrix of different technologies
... so restructred so you can find what you need quickly
... just added section on byte order mark
... and will incorp other things such as saving or encoding on the server and such
... doing this to get the best practices/techniques document moving forward soon
... to get to Note status
... so need tutorial first
... will try to get temp link up by end of meeting

addison: posted a new internet-draft for CLDR locale extension to BCP 47
... use -u- for their extension


andrewc: working on blog post about pseudo- and real Unicode in Myanmar script
... mapped font-based solutions over the Myanmar block in Unicode
... most blogs and many websites use the font-solution
... many users have older computers
... so they need XP SP2 and more to get real Myanmar script
... have to have complex script enable

andrew will post link to blog post to our lists when done

richard: link to latest version
