The code chart for the Wancho script published in the Unicode Standard for Versions 12.0 through 13.0 used a preliminary font with a sub-optimal design for the script. That font for the Wancho script will be replaced in a future version of the standard by an updated font provided by Banwang Losu, as documented in L2/20-121. The current (old) code chart is shown here on the left, and the replacement code chart on the right. (Illustrative charts added to this notice on 2021-11-05.)
