The following is a list of errata noted for
Standard, Version 7.0, its code charts, annexes, the Unicode
Character Database, and the text and data files for other synchronized
specifications. It is periodically updated to include
corrections to typographic errors and new clarifications of the
text. This list also includes errata noted for the core
The Unicode Standard, Version 6.2, and not yet corrected in consolidated text.
Current Errata Notices
In Version 7.0 of the Unicode Character Database, in the file ArabicShaping.txt, two entries for Joining_Type for Mandaic characters have their values inadvertently reversed. The two entries:
These entries will be corrected in a future version of the Unicode Standard.
The character U+301C WAVE DASH was encoded to represent
JIS C 6226-1978 1-33. However, the representative glyph is
inverted relative to the original source. The glyph will be
modified in future editions to match the JIS source. The glyph
shown below on the left is the incorrect glyph. The corrected
glyph is shown on the right. (See
L2/14-198 for further context for this change.)
The representative glyph for the character U+3127 BOPOMOFO LETTER I
in the Unicode 7.0 code charts (and all earlier versions) shows the upright
(vertically standing) glyph which was traditionally used in
Bopomofo typesetting in horizontal line layout contexts. However, in most
contemporary fonts and layout, the horizontally-oriented glyph shown
on the right is used in both horizontal and vertical line layout contexts. The representative glyph for U+3127 will be corrected to
use the glyph on the right in future versions, to reflect current practice
and to avoid confusion in the design of fonts for Bopomofo. (See
L2/14-189 for further context for this change.)
The originally published test data file IdnaTest.txt (http://unicode.org/Public/idna/7.0.0/archive/IdnaTestOriginal20140506.txt) was generated from the wrong version of the main data file IdnaMappingTable.txt, and is in error. In the erroneous test data file, some Unicode 7.0 characters are all disallowed when they should be allowed. The generation process has been revised to prevent this in the future, and the corrected test data file is now posted in (http://unicode.org/Public/idna/7.0.0/IdnaTest.txt). The generation problem did not affect the released version of IdnaMappingTable.txt for Version 7.0; only the test data file was incorrect.
Reports of errors in published documents, such as the Unicode
Standard itself or Unicode Technical Reports, may be filed using the
Unicode Consortium's contact form. If confirmed, and depending on the nature of the
reported error, an erratum may be posted on this page, to be fixed
in subsequent editions of the Standard or related specifications.
