I'm trying to locate the precise specification for the
XID_Start and XID_Continue properties. According to
they are derived properties, so there should be an
algorithm somewhere describing how the are computed
(given other properties). The UCD says that the
specification is in UAX#31, which says I should
However, looking at 5.1, I cannot find a precise
specification of these properties. For example,
5.1.2 says "Certain characters...", but does not
seem to provide a complete list of such characters.
It ends with "In particular, the following four
characters...". Again, that reads like an example -
is it meant as a complete specification?
Likewise, 5.1.3 talks about "certain Arabic presentation
forms", without giving a complete list which precisely
are excluded from XID_Start and XID_Continue.
Any insights appreciated,
