Unicode Consortium Liaison Report – February 2005

Patrik Faltstrom

I have sent a question to the Unicode Consortium regarding Unicode Issue #61 of Jan 27, 2005:

Issue #61 Proposed Update UAX #15 Unicode Normalization Forms

relating to whether there were backward compatibility issues with the proposed update. No formal response has been received as yet, although there has been a request for clarification on the types of backward compatibility issues of concern to the IETF. A specific area of IETF concern is related to nameprep, referencing previous discussions when the normalization rules changed for some characters. The Unicode Consortium is currently considering its response to this question.
