Looking through the mappings at the Unicode ftp server I discovered a
new, very recent version of Apple's Symbol font mapping (b03, 1999-Sep-22).
I think the following mappings should be changed to take the
glyph swap of U+03C6 (phi) and U+03D5 (phi symbol) in Unicode 3.0
'Old', Unicode 2.1:
0x66 0x03C6 # GREEK SMALL LETTER PHI
0x6A 0x03D5 # GREEK PHI SYMBOL
New, Unicode 3.0:
0x66 0x03D5 # GREEK PHI SYMBOL
0x6A 0x03C6 # GREEK SMALL LETTER PHI
The open phi (Symbol 0x6A) will now be U+03C6 (phi) and the
closed phi (Symbol 0x66) U+03D5.
Will these mapping tables be changed or did I miss something?
Is it 'useful' to have two Symbol font mappings, one from Apple,
one from Adobe, which are not identical although the fonts have
the same character set?
