The ConScript Unicode Registry is a volunteer project to coordinate the assignment of code points in the Unicode Private Use Area for the encoding of artificial scripts. It was founded by John Cowan and is maintained by John Cowan and Michael Everson. It has no formal connection with the Unicode Consortium.
The CSUR includes the following scripts:
The following were formerly included, but have since been withdrawn as they are now in Unicode:
- Phaistos Disc (E6D0–E6FF) use 101D0–101FF
- Shavian (E700–E72F) use 10450–1047F
- Deseret (E830–E88F) use 10400–1044F
In September 1997, Michael Everson also proposed Tengwar, Cirth and Klingon for inclusion in Unicode. The Klingon proposal was rejected in May 2001, while the Tengwar and Cirth proposals are still under consideration.

Famous quotes containing the word conscript:
“During the Civil War the area became a refuge for service- dodging Texans, and gangs of bushwhackers, as they were called, hid in its fastnesses. Conscript details of the Confederate Army hunted the fugitives and occasional skirmishes resulted.”
—Administration in the State of Texa, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)
