Apparently, on 1998-12-18 Adobe and Microsoft have changed their WGL4
character repertoire tables on
The following two characters have been removed and are not part
of WGL4 any more:
0x02D6 # MODIFIER LETTER PLUS SIGN
0x02DC # SMALL TILDE
However, the file
still contains the line
0x98 0x02DC #SMALL TILDE
In other words, WGL4 is *not* a superset of CP1252 any more, which is
clearly a serious inconsistency in one of these tables.
This is an important and urgent issue, because WGL4 plays a role in the
standardization of the CEN/TC304 MES-2 European Unicode subset, which is
currently undergoing its final review.
As a reviewer of the CEN/TC304 MES-2 project, I'd like to ask both
Microsoft and Adobe to verify and confirm to me, whether
U+02DC SMALL TILDE
is now part or not part of both WGL4 and CP1252.
It would also be helpful to hear, why U+02D6 MODIFIER LETTER PLUS SIGN
PLEASE REPLY BEFORE FRIDAY, 17 SEPTEMBER 1999!
Thanks and best regards,
