Section 13.5 of Chapter 13 of the Unicode specification is about the
Private Use Area.  The word published is used in an example of the possible
use of Private Use Area code points.  This document is available from
http://www.unicode.org and is called ch13.pdf.

Certainly my collection of code points are not a 'standard' as I make clear
in the documents.  However, if end users choose to use them consistently
they do help move chess founts into Unicode compatibility.

I have now added some code points for the additional pieces for Carrera's
Chess.

The index page is as follows.
