Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit Date: Thu, 21 Nov 2002 21:47:02 +0100 From: "Don Osborn" <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Mac Latin Extended keyboards Reposted from A12n-collaboration. This concerns keyboard layouts for Unicode fonts on Macintosh designed by Eric Rasmussen to facilitate typing of extended Latin characters used in African languages: > I have finally posted the first of my Latin Extended keyboards at: > > http://homepage.mac.com/chinesemac/LatinExtended/index.html > > These are Mac OS keyboards, so the compression format used for the > downloads is SIT. > > I went with a minimum set of African characters, leaving out a number > of IPA characters in Hartell: small alpha, small u with stroke, small > turned v, and small r fishhook. [Note that u with stroke and r with > stroke can be composed using dynamic input.] I also left out a number > of IPA characters already adopted into Unicode for African (with > capitals in Latin Extended-B): upsilon and t with retroflex hook, > neither of which are in Hartell. I added the modifier letter small > raised w (U+02B7), which is used for Twi. > > There will be a version 1.1.1, so additions are still possible... > > Thanks for your help, > > Eric --
