Re: CP037 / CP1047 discrepancies

Sean,

My sources for 037 and 1047 agree with yours. Perhaps Ed was entering
data from a chart and misinterpreted CIRCUMFLEX ACCENT for TILDE and
just goofed on "dieresis" in CECP 037.

Ed's basic point that 1047 has the same repertoire as 037, with
6 code points stirred around, remains valid.

Ed Hart's email shows these differences between CECP 037 and CECP 1047:

>> Code Point CECP 037 CECP 1047
>> 05F NOT TILDE ~
>> 0AD dieresis left bkt [
>> 0B0 TILDE ~ NOT
>> 0BA left bkt [ Y-acute
>> 0BB right bkt ] dieresis
>> 0BD dieresis right bkt ]

yet my sources show that CECP 037 and CECP 1047 have these values at
those codepoints:

CECP 37
Codepoint Unicode Name
========= ======= =======================================
0x5F, 0x00AC, /* NOT SIGN */
0xAD, 0x00DD, /* LATIN CAPITAL LETTER Y WITH ACUTE */
0xB0, 0x005E, /* CIRCUMFLEX ACCENT */
0xBA, 0x005B, /* LEFT SQUARE BRACKET */
0xBB, 0x005D, /* RIGHT SQUARE BRACKET */
0xBD, 0x00A8, /* DIAERESIS */

CECP 1047
Codepoint Unicode Name
========= ======= =======================================
0x5F, 0x005E, /* CIRCUMFLEX */
0xAD, 0x005B, /* LEFT SQUARE BRACKET */
0xB0, 0x00AC, /* NOT SIGN */
0xBA, 0x00DD, /* LATIN CAPITAL LETTER Y WITH ACUTE */
0xBB, 0x00A8, /* DIAERESIS */
0xBD, 0x005D, /* RIGHT SQUARE BRACKET */

Any idea on why there are some discrepancies?
