    This is by far not the only place where the category in
    the character description is simply wrong - or gone wrong
    by the introduction of new characters which doesn't fit.

    Especially in the charts which already were pretty full
    new characters often have no place under the category
    they would fit - the charts become more and mor mixed up.
    (e.g. the new arabic presentation form is no currency symbol)

    I knew, there is no way to avoid this (nothing worse than
    an re-ordering can be done to an ongoing standard), but
    the category-names can (and I think should) be reviced.

    It's no solution to add even more categories (we will end
    up each charakter beeing in it's own category), but find
    new category-names which better fit a fair number of
