 Sender: Mailing list for the LaTeX3 project <[log in to unmask]> From: Barbara Beeton <[log in to unmask]> Date: Sun, 11 Feb 2001 19:20:49 -0500 In-Reply-To: <[log in to unmask]> Reply-To: Mailing list for the LaTeX3 project <[log in to unmask]> Parts/Attachments: text/plain (23 lines) a small update on unicode and math symbols; roozbeh says     There are also ones that will most probably never get into Unicode, like     the dotless j.     [...]     Unicode recommends modifiers for the unified math symbols, which will     become something like \mathmakelonger{\rightarrow} internally. this is still an active area. there has been a strong counterproposal to explicitly encode the long arrows, based on the fact that they are given distinct entity names in the sgml public entity set isoamsa, and the concept of "disunification" has some strong support. the defining proposal will be distributed in a week or two to the utc for a letter ballot; i can't predict whether it will or won't be accepted, but i can say with assurance that the matter isn't yet settled, and if the decision ends up to use a modifier, it won't be a *unicode* modifier, but one defined in mathml.                                                         -- bb
