Dear Edcom,

I am writing on behalf of the W3C Internationalization WG, regarding our shared publication of UTR#20.

Richard Ishida has updated our copy of the document, which is located at [1], making it reference Unicode 6.0, fixing the one typo (accent -> acute), and removing the reference to Charmod-norm. We would like Unicode to consider this draft for publication and will coordinate promoting this version to WG-Note status at W3C to coincide with Unicode's process.

In the meantime, our Working Group is preparing to make substantive changes to the document, particularly to address recent activity related to bidi markup in HTML5. Because HTML5 will continue to evolve during the coming last call process, a "final" version of this document may not be completed for awhile. However, we feel that it is important to begin documenting these issues now. As we've discussed, we intend to continue to coordinate publication of updated versions of this document with Unicode. 

Publication of this current version can proceed independently.

Finally, in reviewing the draft, the working group would like you to consider whether any newly assigned characters need to be added to the lists of characters in the document, such as those not suitable for markup (section 3.1) or format characters suitable for markup (section 4).

Best regards,

Internationalization is not a feature.
It is an architecture.
