[Unicode Announcement] New lower individual member rates

Individual and student members are important contributors to the work of
the Unicode Consortium. From the encoding of rare and minority scripts
to collecting and vetting locale data, individuals help develop the next
generation of Unicode standards and data. To promote participation, the
Unicode Consortium has lowered the price for individual memberships to
$75 per year and student memberships to $35 per year. The new rates are
effective January 1, 2010 and existing memberships will be extended in
accordance with the new lower prices.

The Unicode Consortium has also moved to online publication of the
standard as of Version 5.2, and the entire text of the standard is
freely available for online reading and printing. Copies of the book are
no longer printed and are therefore no longer included as a membership

For more information on the benefits of individual membership and how to
join, see: http://www.unicode.org/consortium/join.html

All of the Unicode Consortium lists are strictly opt-in lists for members
or interested users of our standards. We make every effort to remove
users who do not wish to receive e-mail from us. To see why you are getting
this mail and how to remove yourself from our lists if you want, please
