The Unicode Standard 5.2 is now online only and can be printed freely.

For the next edition of the standard, Unicode 6.0, the editorial

committee would like to find out whether people are interested in the

ability to obtain bound copies of the standard in the form of

individually available volumes covering different selections of the

text and code charts. (Unlike in the past, Unicode 6.0 will not be

published as a single volume by an outside publisher.)

We have created a very brief survey that gives some options and

estimates costs for a print-on-demand version of Unicode 6.0. We would

Unicode mailing lists, but who might be interested. The survey will

close on February 24.
