    Thanks for the response. I've got an old 3.1 version of the Unihan database at
    home, and I was going to complain that the Radical.Stroke index values given for
    U+20003 through U+200ED inclusive are in fact the Radical and Stroke index
    values for the preceding ideograph. Checking the latest (3.2) version of the
    Unihan database this morning I found that this problem has now been fixed (not
    the Mandarin readings though), so I guess it pays to ensure that you always have
    the latest version of Unihan.

    BTW, is it possible for Unicode to provide a Unihan.xml version of the Unihan
    database ? The first thing I do is convert the Unihan.txt file into XML format
    for ease of processing.
