Subject: Final Canadian Position on JTC1 N6233

Canada can support this ballot however clarity is required as to the intent of the proposal on availability of the registry.

Specifically it is unknown from the JTC1 proposal whether the registry will be made freely available on line, the cost associated with registration etc. If the costs are unreasonable, our concern is that the document will not be up to date, especially if the font vendors do not register the glyphs.

Canada seeks clarity on this point.
