Re: New Bengali character?

Brendan and others,

Given the information that has come forth about this
Bengali "candra e", it sounds like a valid candidate
for encoding.

The most straightforward thing to do is to simply

One of the reasons the Unicode Indic charts were laid
out the way they were was in acknowledgement of the
ISCII-based cross-transliteration practice for the
various Indian scripts -- knowing that we might have
missed some existing letters used in transliteration,
or that new letters might even be added to facilitate
particular instances of transliteration among the
Indian scripts.

I would suggest that one of the proponents of this Bengali
letter fill out the WG2 proposal summary form and submit a
complete proposal to UTC and/or to WG2 for this.

(If you don't know where to get a WG2 proposal summary
form, there are many instances available on Michael
Everson's website: )
