There is a TEIIPA entity set and wsd publicly available on the servers.
It is based on the 1989 IPA symbol set. John Esling of IPA and I drew them
up. There were a few more revisions decided in 1993 which we are working
on to issue a revision very soon. I am also working at the moment on a
mapping to the Adobe StoneIPA font which can be used within Explorer and
Panorama. I will make this publicly available as soon as it is ready. This
could be used by others to map the entities to their local IPA font if
they use another one.
The body which makes IPA decisions is the International Phonetic Association.
John Esling is its secretary. Their decisions are published in the
Journal of the IPA (JIPA). John and I wrote an article recently in it
on the IPA entity set.
On the ellipsis we did not include it because we assume all the ISO public
entity sets are available.
Hope this helps.
