Abstract

An essential first step in the localisation of software is the proper encoding of the scripts of the new language. Drawing upon experience in Saudi Arabia in the 1970s and now in Nepal, I set out a number of principles to guide the production of code tables, and then analyse alternative proposals for Nepali. From this it is shown that existing code tables in Unicode have shortcomings and should be reviewed, while the proposals under discussion for Nepali should be given time to be worked through.
