Two New Public Review Issues, UAX #9 and UTR #20

The Unicode Technical Committee has posted two new issues for public review and comment.


Review periods for the new items close on January 21, 2013.
Please see the page for links to discussion and relevant documents.

Briefly, the new issues are:

PRI #232, Proposed Update UAX #9, Unicode Bidirectional Algorithm

UAX #9 will be updated for Unicode 6.2.1. This proposed update involves a substantial extension of the Unicode Bidirectional Algorithm to allow for the implementation of isolate runs. It also introduces a new X_Bidi_Class property in support of that extension. See the modifications section of the proposed update for information on specific changes to sections in the document.

PRI #233, Proposed Update UTR #20, Unicode in XML and other Markup Languages

This Unicode Technical Report will have its references corrected and various other small editorial changes made to bring it up-to-date with Unicode 6.2.
