Dear all,

The berber alphabet tifinaghe, worked out by l'Institut Royal of the 
Amazighe Culture  (IRCAM, http://www.ircam.ma/) and contributed by P. 
Andries from Canada , was officially recognized as a part of the basic 
multilingual Plan by the Organisation Internationale of Standardization 
(ISO). The coding of Tifinaghe, which contains 54 characters plus a 
diacritic character and 25 empty codes for future rearrangements, was 
submitted to l'ISO and accepted with unanimity at its meeting to Markam 
(Ontario/Canada) on 21-25 june.
The coding of Tifinaghe-IRCAM, should be included soon in amendement-1 
of ISO 10.646 then in UNICODE.
