Roadmap to the SMP
The following table shows a map of the actual and proposed allocation on Plane 1, the SMP (Supplementary Multilingual Plane). A description of the presentation conventions used in the table is at the bottom of this page.
This document is informative and those parts reflecting proposals are of a provisional nature. Please send corrigenda and other comments to the authors using the online contact form.
The SMP is tentatively mapped out to the following zones:
00010000-000100FF Linear B
00010100-000101CF Ancient numeric systems
000101D0-000107FF Alphabetic and syllabic LTR scripts and sets of symbols
00010800-00010FFF Alphabetic and syllabic RTL scripts
00011000-00011FFF Brahmic scripts
00012000-00012FFF Cuneiform and other ancient scripts
00013000-000143FF Egyptian hieroglyphs
00014400-00015FFF Other large scripts
00016000-00016FFF Recently-devised scripts
00017000-0001B4FF Large East Asian scripts
0001B500-0001BBFF Other large scripts
0001C000-0001CFFF Other large scripts
0001D000-0001DFFF Notational systems
0001E000-0001E7FF Alphabetic and syllabic LTR scripts
0001E800-0001EFFF RTL scripts
0001F000-0001F0DF Game symbols
0001F0E0-0001F2FF Alphanumeric and ideographic sets
0001F300-0001F7FF Pictographic sets
- Bold text indicates an allocated (that is, published) character collection.
For blocks containing assigned graphic or format characters, there is a link to the charts on the Unicode web site.
- (Bold text between parentheses) indicates scripts which have been formally accepted by UTC or WG2 for processing toward inclusion in the standard. There is generally a link to a mature proposal for the script.
- (Text between parentheses) indicates scripts for which proposals have been formally submitted to the UTC or to WG2. There is generally a link to the formal proposal.
- ¿Text between question marks? indicates scripts for which detailed proposals have not yet been written. There may be a link to an exploratory code table.
- ??? in a block indicates that no suggestion has been made regarding the block allocation.
- Color highlighting is used to indicate blocks and unassigned ranges which default to right-to-left character behavior.
- Grey shading is used to indicate ranges of control characters and noncharacters.
NOTE: When scripts are actually proposed to the UTC or to WG2, the practice is to "front" them in the zones to which they are tentatively allocated, and to adjust the block size with regard to the allocation proposed.
The size and location of the unallocated script blocks are merely proposals based on the current state of planning. The size and location of a script may change during final allocation of the script.
The Roadmap Committee maintains and updates this document as a service to the Unicode Technical Committee and to ISO/IEC JTC1/SC2/WG2.
