In 5.2, Chapter 2.4 table 2-3 is listed which General Categories are "characters". Out are: Surrogates, Private Use, Non-characters and Reserved code points. Note that Format characters (Cf) are included as characters. The code points with formatting aspects in C0 and C1 are Controls ("Cc"), so excluded.
Total number of characters in 6.0 is 109,242+142=109,384.
