It may be useful to remark that there's a caveat in regard to some of the Unicode assignments in the fine table unicode.xml. For the ISO "mathy" items not already in Unicode 3.0 the assignments are those in the STIX proposal presently wending its way through the standards process of deliberations by the UTC and ISO WG2. The proposal, which is actually made up of several parts, seems to have wide-spread support. The assignments given have been picked by the relevant expert members or advisors to these groups. However, they have not yet been affirmed finally by the standards process, which ultimately involves voting by national representatives. There will be a discussion of some of the finer details of the proposal (which had to be modified as a result of an ISO meeting in Beijing last month) at a UTC meeting in Mountain View, CA tomorrow. Many of us, for instance on the W3C Math WG and at the AMS, hope that these extensions to Unicode for the benefit of scientific communication on the Web will go through essentially as they are. There is a reasonable expectation that this will happen. I would ask everyone not to hesitate to voice support for these developments.
