.[95-C2] Consensus: Create Proposed Draft Unicode Technical Report #31: Identifier and Pattern Syntax, including information from the Unicode Standard 4.0, section 5.15, as well as the items given in L2/03-172. Post for public review.
[95-C4] Consensus: Issue Proposed Update Unicode Standard Annex #29: Text Boundaries to 1) add the new informative property Sentence_Terminal (short name STerm) in PropList.txt with the contents as given in document L2/03-145 and modified by discussion, and 2) modify the definition of the "Term" property in Unicode Standard Annex #29: Text Boundaries to reflect point "2" of L2/03-145, and updates discussed during the meeting.
[95-C5] Consensus: Remove the last two lines of the Bengali example in Section 9.2 of the Unicode Standard 4.0 (page 235). Post a Public Review Issue which describes the two approaches (shown in L2/03-192), closing August 18, 2003. The final decision is to be taken at the August UTC.
[95-C6] Consensus: Align the math property with the list of strongly mathematical characters as specified by the criteria in 3.1.1 of document L2/03-165. Remove the first table from the Other_math property. Add the second table to the Other_math property. The full-width tilde will be struck from the list. The general category is not touched.
[95-C7] Consensus: Advance Draft Unicode Technical Report #25: Unicode Support for Mathematics to Unicode Technical Report #25: Unicode Support for Mathematics with the following changes: align the descriptions in section 3.1.1 and 3.1.2 with the revisions of the Other_math property such that the weak math property (Other_math) does not contain any characters that have the math property, and with additional text modifications raised during discussion, including responding to comments raised in document L2/03-182. [L2/03-165]
[95-C8] Consensus: There should not be an extensive table change to 14651 to handle Thai and Lao, rather, the UTC suggests that those interested in approaches to collating Thai and Lao add example methodologies to appendix C2 of 14651. [L2/03-185]
[95-C11] Consensus: Accept 53 characters, the 52 Greek Acrophonic characters in proposal L2/03-075R2 and the one character ACROPHONIC TWO DOT PUNCTUATION as shown in L2/03-193 for encoding at locations U+10140..U+10174 with the structure of the names changed as discussed in the meeting.

[95-C17] Consensus: Accept the 23 characters in L2/03-168 with names as modified in discussion and with code points as indicated in L2/03-210: three vowels at 065A..065C, and the other 20 letters at 0750..0758; 075A..075B; 075D..0761; 0764..0767
[95-C19] Consensus: Accept the four characters proposed in with the following names and code point assignments: [L2/02-274, L2/03-210]
U+0759 ARABIC LETTER DAL WITH TWO DOTS VERTICALLY BELOW AND SMALL TAH
U+075C ARABIC LETTER SEEN WITH FOUR DOTS ABOVE
U+0768 ARABIC LETTER NOON WITH DOT ABOVE AND SMALL TAH
U+0769 ARABIC LETTER NOON WITH SMALL V
[95-C21] Consensus: Start a new Arabic block at U+0750 and call it "Arabic Supplementary".

Motion 95-M2 passes
[95-C23] Consensus: The UTC accepts the Syloti Nagri Script for encoding at A800..A82B with names as amended in discussion. Syloti Nagari Sign Ful (U+xx28 in the document) is renamed "Eight Pointed Asterisk", and is placed at U+2055. (Note: the name of the above character was changed by consensus 95-C27 to "Flower Punctuation Mark", as the glyph is not always 8-pointed.)
[95-C24] Consensus: Accept 7 additional mathematical and other letterlike characters: L2/03-194, L2/03-201
0237 SMALL LETTER DOTLESS J
0358 COMBINING LONG DOUBLE SOLIDUS OVERLAY
213C DOUBLE-STRUCK SMALL PI
214C PER SIGN
1D6A4 MATHEMATICAL ITALIC DOTLESS I
1D6A5 MATHEMATICAL ITALIC DOTLESS J
[95-C28] Consensus: Use the code point assignments for the newly accepted Arabic characters as given in document L2/03-210. Note: this decision has been reflected back into the prior motions, so that these minutes reflect the final disposition of code points for Arabic proposals accepted at this meeting.
[95-M3] Motion: In view of the many problems which turned up when attempting to design a tailoring mechanism for normalization, the UTC now rescinds consensus 93-C22, and will not add a mechanism for tailored normalizations.) [L2/03-047, L2/03-058]

[95-C29] Consensus: Close Public Review Issue #8 (Math Digits). The UTC sees no reason to change the numeric values assigned to the Math Digits 1D7C9..1D7FF.
To add below D13:
- In terms of General Category values (see Chapter 4), a base character is any code point that has one of the categories Letter (L), Number (N), Punctuation (P), Symbol (S), Space Separator (Zs). (In other words, it excludes the values Cn, Cs, Cc, Cf, Zl, Zp, Mc, Mn, and Me).
- The interpretation of Private Use characters (Co) as base characters or not is determined by the implementation.
To add below D14:
- Combining characters consist of all characters with the General Category values of Spacing Combining Mark (Mc), Non-Spacing Mark (Mn), and Enclosing Mark (Me). The interpretation of Private Use characters (Co) as combining characters or not is determined by the implementation.
