This challenging work has included collecting candidates from multiple sources, evaluating unification considerations, preparing input into the Unicode and ISO standardization processes, and collaborating closely with the editorial teams to drive process to the completed end result, encoding of unified CJKV ideographs in the published international and industry standards.
