Geoffrey, here is some information which may help you:

TIS620-2533 is the revised TIS620-2529. There's no significant difference
between the two. TIS620-2529 has been withdrawn and replaced by TIS620-
2533. Only minor details and clarifications are put into the 2533 version.
As far as Thai codepoints are concerned, they are identical.

Hope this helps.
