ConScript Unicode Registry
The ConScript Unicode Registry is a volunteer project to coordinate the assignment of code points in the Unicode Private Use Area for the encoding of artificial scripts.1 It was founded by John Cowan and is maintained by him and Michael Everson. It has no formal connection with the Unicode Consortium.
The CSUR includes the following scripts:
The following were formerly included, but have since been withdrawn as they are now in Unicode:
- Phaistos Disc (E6D0–E6FF) use 101D0–101FF
- Shavian (E700–E72F) use 10450–1047F
- Deseret (E830–E88F) use 10400–1044F
In September 1997, Michael Everson also proposed Tengwar, Cirth and Klingon for inclusion in Unicode.234 The Klingon proposal was rejected in May 2001,5 while the Tengwar and Cirth proposals are still under consideration.6
Few fonts support ConScript Unicode specified code points. However, there are two reference fonts7 provided by UCSU.
- Constructium proportional, based on the SIL Gentium.
- Fairfax mono-spaced, intended for text editors and terminals.
- Proposal to encode Tengwar in Plane 1 of ISO/IEC 10646-2
- Proposal to encode Cirth in Plane 1 of ISO/IEC 10646-2
- Proposal to encode Klingon in Plane 1 of ISO/IEC 10646-2
- Archive of Notices of Non-Approval
