Restructure Date_Field_Symbol_Table

Description (last modified by mark) (diff)


The table has gotten huge and unwieldy, hard to navigate. Also, the simplest way for people to find, eg, 'MMMM' is to search, but that is not actually in the table. The table also doesn't take account of the commonality of widths among text and numeric field.

I suggest we reorganize to

  • describe at the top the standard width variations
  • change the No. column to have the sequences, not the numbers.
  • use a combined description for all the widths.
  • make the Field + Description be full width

So the columns would be something like the following. Hard to show without the real structure, and need to play around with it to get the optimal structure.

periodThe periods of a day<this row is shaded>
AM/PM <Description (spanning 4 rows)>
a,aa,aaa12 am
aaaa12 am
midnight/am/noon/pm <Description (spanning 4 rows)>
b,bb,bbbb12 mid.
aaaa12 midnight

Out of time for this one in CLDR 29, it is no worse than it has been, and the work is significant; moving to 30
