Something has gone wrong with the new alphabetic information data item

Reported by: kent.karlsson14@… Owned by: mark
Component: to-assess Data Locale: multiple
Phase: dsub Review:
Weeks: Data Xpath:


Core Data Alphabetic Information Characters in Use Others: numbers

This applies to multiple locales, and there is some variation in the data, but I pick one here (from some locale) to describe the issues.

[\- , . % ‰ + 0-9]

Missing here are MINUS SIGN (for just about all locales); for Swedish and many other locales, middle dot is missing; for English and many other locales multiplication cross is missing. These are part of the number syntax, including "times ten to the power of". Also missing from just about all locales is superscript digits (used in "times ten to the power of"). Also superscript plus sign and superscript minus sign. Even e and E (and ^...) when in certain locations in the number is a part of the number (not the irrational number e, but "computer style" "times ten to the power of").

However, % and ‰ aren't part of the number syntax at all. Yes, they do "modify" the number, but so does "ppm", decimal and binary unit prefixes, and the "short large number forms" (of CLDR). So % and ‰ need be removed from these data items.

  • Phase changed from dsub to dvet
  • Milestone changed from UNSCH to 33

Agreed to consider how we want to expand/contract this in v33. Probably want to remove % and ‰, maybe and sci. notation. Might want to pull in elements like MINUS from the parseLenients.
