The Rongo-Rongo encoding project gets some 'legs' under it?

People who attended the 26th Internationalization and Unicode conference might remember John McConnell's Day 2 Keynote The Windows Language Roadmap or When Do We Get Rongo-Rongo?.

Or maybe you saw the later version of the talk at the 2004 Global Development and Deployment Conference.

Or maybe you just read my blog When will we support Rongo-Rongo?.

Anyway, this becomes a rather fascinating addition to the story of Rongo-Rongo and Easter Island:

Easter island heads have bodies!??

If nothing else, that may mean many more text samples to work with.

Hidden in some back or kneecap or maybe even crotch there could be some Rosetta Stone equivalent....

Maybe even there will be enough information for Rongo-Rongo to be encoded in Unicode! :-)
