Note: this is another proposal from John Slatin that I am forwarding to
the entire working group. Loretta

You may recall that at the end of the October F2F meeting in Seattle,
Gregg and Makoto were given an action to develop a proposal about
pronunciation. (Quick background: The May 2005 proposal for GL 3.1
included a proposed SC about pronunciation. The proposal was rejected at
the Brussels F2F (June 2005) and the rejection was ratified on the call
following the Brussels meeting. However, the issue was raised again at
the October F2F during the discussion of JIS comments, and the action
was assigned to Gregg and Makoto. This proposal is the result.)

This message includes only the proposed wording for the SC, plus links
to the proposed How to Meet 3.1.6 document and a sufficient HTML
technique.
