>Greetings,
>
>A number of the Ethiopian language news services have tentatively planned
>for a "Unicode Only" week during the first week of January.  Service in all
>other encoding systems would be suspended during the week.  The intention
>is to give users a gentle push to download and install a Unicode font.  Users
>will be warned weeks ahead of time of the impending legacy encoding outage.
>
>The choice of the first week of January was mostly arbitrary.  If other web
>sites would like to join us for a larger "Unicode Only" week please contact
>me offline.  We could reschedule to coincide with the week of IUC-20 if there
>is enough interest.

>cheers,
