The Unicode Technical Committee has posted three new public review issues.
Details are on the following web page:
Briefly the new issues are:
47 Changes to default collation of Latin in UCA
In collation, searching, and matching according to the Unicode Collation
algorithm, the 10 characters Æ, Ǽ, Ǣ, Đ, Ð, Ħ, Ł, Ŀ, Ø, Ǿ (and
their lowercase forms) currently have primary (base letter) differences
from the letters A, D, H, L, and O respectively. There is a proposal before
the UTC to change these to have secondary (accent) differences from AE, D,
H, L, O, respectively. We would welcome feedback on this issue -- pro or
con. Arguments for the change are in the background document. We expect to
add the contrary point of view to that document.
48 Definition of "Directional Run"
A definition of "directional run" is proposed for inclusion in UAX #9 The
Bidirectional Algorithm. The UTC is seeking public feedback on this
definition. See the background document for details.
49 Proposed Update UTS #6 A Standard Compression Scheme for Unicode
This is a proposed update to a previously approved Unicode Technical
Standard. This standard describes a compression scheme (SCSU) mainly
intended for use with short to medium length Unicode strings. A number of
changes and clarifications have been made in the text, and the UTC is
seeking public feedback on these changes.
The closing date for comments on these issues is 2004/11/08.
If you have comments for official UTC consideration, please post them by
submitting your comments through our feedback & reporting page:
