Subject: Bidi/Hebrew Identifiers
Following are suggestions for the modification or elaboration of the Unicode
rules regarding identifiers with respect to Hebrew. These suggestions were
discussed at a technical meeting of the SII, and comments are requested.
Reference: TUS 3.0 5.16 page 133
Cantillation marks (0591 to 05AF, 05C4): These characters should not be
in identifiers. They are only used in special circumstances, for Biblical
Bidi formatting codes (202A to 202E, 200E, 200F): These characters should
allowed in identifiers (RLM and LRM require further thought). These codes
problematic, because they can make different strings appear identical.
Identifiers are single words and do not require these codes.
Points (05B0 to 05BD, 05BF to 05BF, 05C1, 05C2): These characters should be
allowed. In those situations where case is ignored for other languages,
characters should be ignored. Points are optional in Hebrew, and in normal
their presence or absence should not be meaningful.
