Subject: ISO 15919 Latin characters not in Unicode

Dear Colleagues

Now that ISO 15919 has been published, I am thinking about the Latin
characters with diacritics which are not currently available in composed
form in Unicode, but which are prescribed or recommended in ISO 15919.

Grouped lists of these characters may be found under section U9 at:

Those responsible for Unicode / ISO 10646 have decided not to
encode any more chararacters which have decompositions into the
standard.   So our best approach may be to point out to font publishers
such as Microsoft, Apple, Adobe, Monotype, Linotype, etc., that support
for these character combinations is needed in their OpenType fonts.
