UTC Document Search
The working documents for the Unicode Technical
Committee are publicly accessible in the UTC Document Registry
on this site. For the very latest documents, see the
Current Document Register.
A few documents have been password protected for UTC member-only access by request
of their originators.
To search for particular documents by title or contents, you can use widely
available web search tools. This page also provides a custom mechanism for searching for a particular document in the UTC Document Registry by its document number.
Finding Documents by Number
This form can be used to find documents by number. The
form will generate a web page containing links to all the available
documents corresponding to a particular number. The results will include all
the revisions if a document
has multiple revisions.
Document numbers are of the
form: L2/yy-nnn where "yy" is the last two digits of the
year and "nnn" is a three digit number beginning with 001 for
each year. To search for a known document number, select the year from
the pulldown menu and input the three-digit number ("nnn") in the text
Note for advanced users: It you type or paste in a
full document number such as L2/10-112 the year in the pulldown menu will
be ignored and the form will search for the full document number as given. If you leave the year
blank and just type a number such as "112", the current year will be assumed. Anything
else will be passed as is to the back-end script, described below.
Finding Documents by CGI Script
Alternatively, there is a CGI script that can be used
directly to locate documents if you know the document number. The script is called GetMatchingDocs.pl and can be used as
illustrated in the examples below. A template link is provided here:
As argument, you supply a full document number in the
normal format L2/yy-nnn and it returns an HTML page that
contains links to all matching documents. The script may return
multiple items, since some documents have multiple parts, or have
revisions (R2, R3) that are kept in the registry.
Wildcarding with "?" for single digits of the search
string is supported. For example, to get a list of documents 320-329
for year 2001:
If you give the script a raw 5-digit number it will be
interpreted as yy-nnn. If you give it 3 digits, the current
year will be assumed.
