If you mean about the question of Hungarian Runic or Old Hungarian, André Szabolcs Szelp and I have prepared the following document http://std.dkuug.dk/jtc1/sc2/wg2/docs/n4042.pdf which maps between Gábor Hosszú's http://std.dkuug.dk/jtc1/sc2/wg2/docs/n4007.pdf and our http://std.dkuug.dk/jtc1/sc2/wg2/docs/n3697.pdf

The first of those three documents gives clear recommendations. Will you be representing ÖNorm at the meeting?

I really don't know what you're talking about "brackets" but I know Ken well, and presented Teuthonista briefly yesterday to the UTC and did not get any trouble back. I did point out that we had removed characters that they had suggested removing previously.

Ken is a well-informed linguist.

We don't need a lot of that, but a paragraph or so would be OK.
