Tomas -
I assume that you read about some of our work with Unicode in the  
past? Not that it really matters, but here are some web pages just in  

We were the ones that established SGN to stand for signed languages  
in computer language codes...Michael Everson and I worked on this  
together and our non-profit organization paid for the costs  
involved...That was a big job for us to get that appoved by the ISO  
and recently I can see that people just take that code for granted  
and I happy to see it ...Registering these language codes with the  
ISO was an interesting experience! Lots of politics...but we succeeded!

And Unicode also has some of that kind of politics...

Anyway, thanks for all your great messages -

Val ;-)
