    The text of the background document for Public Review Issue #96, "Allowing
    Joiner Characters in Identifiers"
    ( ) has had substantial
    modifications: it has significantly tightened the requirements for ZWJ and
    ZWNJ by reducing the number of possible scripts, and   simplifying the
    sequences. It also added the equivalent characters needed for Mongolian.

    This PRI affects the use of special characters (ZWJ, ZWNJ and Mongolian
    separators) in identifiers. It may be  relevant in a variety of contexts,
    including such areas as international domain  names for Arabic, Persian,
    Sinhalese, Khmer, and Malayalam. If you believe that there are any other
    languages requiring the use of special characters, please respond  as
    directed on and include the PRI number and
    Revision Number in your message.

    Any feedback on this PRI that is submitted before May 14 may be considered
    at the subsequent UTC meeting.

    If you have comments for official UTC consideration, please post them by
    submitting your comments through our feedback & reporting page:
