New ISO 639 identifier: zbl = Blissymbols

The ISO 639 Registration Authorities' Joint Advisory Committee (JAC) has decided to approve the following item to be included in the ISO 639-2 and the ISO 639-3 code tables:
Alpha-3 identifier: zbl
No alpha-2 identifier assigned
English names: Blissymbols; Blissymbolics; Bliss
French names: symboles Bliss; Bliss
This is an artificial language. It is a written language only; by its nature it has no spoken form.
The indigenous name is "a symbol like a reversed Z", but since Blissymbols are not yet encoded in an ISO standard, this is not formally registered.
Best regards,
Håvard Hjulstad
