Proposal for encoding the Todhri script in the SMP of the UCS

This is a proposal to add the Todhri script to the international character encoding standard Unicode. Todhri was used in Elbasan, a region in central Albania, to write the Albanian language in the 18th and 19th centuries, and sporadically into the 20th century. The script is said to have been created by Dhaskal Todhri, whose full name was Theodor Haxhifilipi.

Financial support was provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities (PR-253360-17 and PR -268710-20) for the Universal Scripts Project, part of the Script Encoding Initiative at UC Berkeley. The Unicode Consortium hosts the document registry that contains this proposal.

This proposal was approved by the Unicode Technical Committee in April 2022 for a future version of the Unicode Standard. 

There is one change to the proposal involving the decomposition of two characters, but the basic character set remains the same.
