4. Medievalist proposals to Unicode

Members of the MUFI group and other scholars have submitted several proposals to Unicode for the inclusion of new characters in the Standard:

N3027 proposal to Unicode

A proposal for the inclusion of approx. 100 medieval characters was submitted to the Unicode Technical Committee and favourably received at the 6–9 February 2006 meeting (although questions were raised about some of the characters). The proposal has been edited by Michael Everson and has contributors from the MUFI group as well as from other projects.

The characters in this proposal have been drawn from several sources and are attested with a broad variety of samples from many European countries.
