Updates and Errata

The following is a list of errata noted for The Unicode Standard, Version 7.0, its code charts, annexes, the Unicode Character Database, and the text and data files for other synchronized specifications. It is periodically updated to include corrections to typographic errors and new clarifications of the text. This list also includes errata noted for the core specification, The Unicode Standard, Version 6.2, and not yet corrected in consolidated text.

Current Errata Notices

Date  Summary 
2014-October-21

In Version 7.0 of the Unicode Character Database, in the file ArabicShaping.txt, two entries for Joining_Type for Mandaic characters have their values inadvertently reversed. The two entries:

0847; MANDAIC IT; D; No_Joining_Group
084F; MANDAIC IN; R; No_Joining_Group

should have been recorded as:

0847; MANDAIC IT; R; No_Joining_Group
084F; MANDAIC IN; D; No_Joining_Group

These entries will be corrected in a future version of the Unicode Standard.

2014-October-6 The character U+301C WAVE DASH was encoded to represent JIS C 6226-1978 1-33. However, the representative glyph is inverted relative to the original source. The glyph will be modified in future editions to match the JIS source. The glyph shown below on the left is the incorrect glyph. The corrected glyph is shown on the right. (See document L2/14-198 for further context for this change.)
U+301C, wrong    U+301C, correct
2014-October-6 The representative glyph for the character U+3127 BOPOMOFO LETTER I in the Unicode 7.0 code charts (and all earlier versions) shows the upright (vertically standing) glyph which was traditionally used in Bopomofo typesetting in horizontal line layout contexts. However, in most contemporary fonts and layout, the horizontally-oriented glyph shown on the right is used in both horizontal and vertical line layout contexts. The representative glyph for U+3127 will be corrected to use the glyph on the right in future versions, to reflect current practice and to avoid confusion in the design of fonts for Bopomofo. (See document L2/14-189 for further context for this change.)
U+3127, Vertical Bar Form    U+3127, Horizontal Bar Form
2014-July-10 The originally published test data file IdnaTest.txt (http://unicode.org/Public/idna/7.0.0/archive/IdnaTestOriginal20140506.txt) was generated from the wrong version of the main data file IdnaMappingTable.txt, and is in error. In the erroneous test data file, some Unicode 7.0 characters are all disallowed when they should be allowed. The generation process has been revised to prevent this in the future, and the corrected test data file is now posted in (http://unicode.org/Public/idna/7.0.0/IdnaTest.txt). The generation problem did not affect the released version of IdnaMappingTable.txt for Version 7.0; only the test data file was incorrect.

Reports of errors in published documents, such as the Unicode Standard itself or Unicode Technical Reports, may be filed using the Unicode Consortium's contact form. If confirmed, and depending on the nature of the reported error, an erratum may be posted on this page, to be fixed in subsequent editions of the Standard or related specifications.

Formal corrigenda notices for the Unicode Standard can be found at Corrigenda to the Unicode Standard. Corrigenda for the Unicode CLDR are posted at Unicode CLDR Corrigenda. Errata notices for Unicode CLDR and its related specification, UTS #35: Locale Data Markup Language (LDML) can be found in the various release notes accessed from the Unicode CLDR Downloads page. For information regarding current bug reports for Unicode CLDR, see Unicode CLDR Bug Tracking Available Reports.
