Hi folks,

The excellent Character Model has progressed to highest status
as a W3C standard (Recommendation - term from ITU-T standards).

Well worth reading by anyone in the printer industry.

Cheers,
- Ira

Subject: Character Model Fundamentals becomes a Recommendation



The World Wide Web Consortium today released Character Model for the World
Wide Web 1.0: Fundamentals as a W3C Recommendation. The document allows Web
applications to transmit and process the characters of the world's
languages. Building on the Universal Character Set defined by Unicode and
ISO/IEC 10646, it gives authors of specifications, software developers, and
content developers a common reference for text manipulation. Read the press
release[2].
