Corrigendum #8 issued for U+070F SYRIAC ABBREVIATION MARK

Corrigendum #8 has been issued, to correct the Bidi_Class for U+070F SYRIAC ABBREVIATION MARK. This corrigendum corrects the Bidi_Class to the value which was intended for Unicode 6.0, so that U+070F will not be separated into distinct directional runs from the other Syriac characters it is used with.

As for other corrigenda, this correction to the Bidi_Class value for U+070F does not modify the content of Unicode 6.0. However, it makes it possible for applications to declare conformance to Unicode 6.0 plus Corrigendum #8, if needed.
