The Unicode Technical Committee has posted two new issues for public
review and comment. Details are on the following web page:
Review periods for the new items close on November 8, 2004.
Briefly, the new issues are:
44 Bidi Category of Fullwidth Solidus
Unicode 4.0.1 changes the Bidi Category U+002F SOLIDUS from "ES" to "CS"
but leaves U+FF0F FULLWIDTH SOLIDUS as category "ES". U+FF0F FULLWIDTH
SOLIDUS should probably have the same bidi class as its regular sibling.
The UTC proposes to make this change for Unicode 4.1.
45 Linebreaking Category of Narrow No-Break Space
Should the linebreaking category of Narrow No-Break Space (NNBSP, U+202F)
be changed from WS to CS, in analogy to No-Break Space U+00A0? The reason
for the change is that in all scripts but Mongolian it acts like ordinary
NBSP, except for its width. In Mongolian it may be recognized in shaping.
