One more attempt to fix the fix <wink>.
1. "east asian" should be "East Asian".
2. The semi-colon after "now" should be a colon.
3. The "now" after "methods" should be removed.
Given the content changes, I'd now suggest:
"Unicode objects received two new methods: iswide() and width(). These
query East Asian width information, as specified in Unicode TR11."
(To me (and this might be a NZ thing or something) "according to" doesn't
convey the quite same meaning as "as specified in", or "as described by", or
words to that effect; hence the other change. It's not as important).
