Proposal for encoding the Javanese script in the UCS
- Author(s): Everson, Michael
- et al.
This is a proposal to encode the Javanese script in the international character encoding standard Unicode. The script was published in Unicode Standard version 5.2 in October 2009. Javanese script is used to write the Javanese language and other languages, including Sanskrit, Sundanese, and Sasak. In 1928 Bahasa Indonesia, which is written with Latin letters, became the national language of Indonesia; it eventually became the predominant language, eclipsing other languages and scripts.
