ISO/IEC 10646 specifies the Universal Multiple-Octet Coded Character Set (UCS). It is applicable to the representation, transmission, interchange, processing, storage, input and presentation of the written form of the languages of the world as well as additional symbols.
ISO/IEC 10646 Part 1 specifies the overall architecture and the Basic
(BMP) of the UCS.
This second part:
- specifies the Secondary Multilingual Plane for scripts and symbols (SMP) of the UCS and defines a set of graphic characters used in scripts not covered by the plane specified below (SIP) and the BMP;
- specifies the Supplementary Plane for CJK Unified Ideographs (SIP) of the UCS and defines a set of graphic characters that are used in East Asia. These are defined as Chinese/Japanese/Korean (CJK) unified ideo-graphs (unified East Asian ideographs);
- specifies the General Purpose Plane (GPP) and defines a set of special purpose use characters.
- specifies the names for graphic characters of these planes, and the coded representation using the four-octet (32-bit) canonical form of the UCS.
- Graphic characters that are already encoded in the Part 1 are not repeated in these supplementary planes. In addition, any character is assigned to only one code position within the set of supplementary planes specified in this Part 2.
