For more information about - character properties and mappings, see The Unicode Standard. -  - The Unicode Character Database has been updated to reflect Version 3.0 of - the Unicode Standard, with many characters added to those published in - Version 2.0. A number of corrections have also been made to case mappings or - other errors in the database noted since the publication of Version 2.0. - Normative bidirectional properties have also been modified to reflect - decisions of the Unicode Technical Committee. -  - For more information on versions of the Unicode Standard and how to - reference them, see http://www.unicode.org/unicode/standard/versions/. -  - Conformance -  - Character properties may be either normative or informative. Normative means - that implementations that claim conformance to the Unicode Standard (at a - particular version) and which make use of a particular property or field - must follow the specifications of the standard for that property or field in - order to be conformant. The term normative when applied to a property or - field of the Unicode Character Database, does not mean that the value of - that field will never change. Corrections and extensions to the standard in - the future may require minor changes to normative values, even though the - Unicode Technical Committee strives to minimize such changes. An informative - property or field is strongly recommended, but a conformant implementation - is free to use or change such values as it may require while still being - conformant to the standard. Particular implementations may choose to - override the properties and mappings that are not normative. In that case, - it is up to the implementer to establish a protocol to convey that - information. -  - Files -  - The following summarizes the files in the Unicode Character Database. For - more information about these files, see the referenced technical report or - section of Unicode Standard, Version 3.0. -  - UnicodeData.txt (Chapter 4) -  -  * The main file in the Unicode Character Database. -  * For detailed information on the format, see UnicodeData.html. This file -  also characterizes which properties are normative and which are -  informative. -  - PropList.txt (Chapter 4) -  -  * Additional informative properties list: Alphabetic, Ideographic, and -  Mathematical, among others. -  - SpecialCasing.txt (Chapter 4) -  -  * List of informative special casing properties, including one-to-many -  mappings such as SHARP S => "SS", and locale-specific mappings, such as -  for Turkish dotless i. -  - Blocks.txt (Chapter 14) -  -  * List of normative block names. -  - Jamo.txt (Chapter 4) -  -  * List of normative Jamo short names, used in deriving HANGUL SYLLABLE -  names algorithmically. -  - ArabicShaping.txt (Section 8.2) -  -  * Basic Arabic and Syriac character shaping properties, such as initial, -  medial and final shapes. These properties are normative for minimal -  shaping of Arabic and Syriac. -  - NamesList.txt (Chapter 14) -  -  * This file duplicates some of the material in the UnicodeData file, and -  adds informative annotations uses in the character charts, as printed -  in the Unicode Standard. -  * Note: The information in NamesList.txt and Index.txt files matches the -  appropriate version of the book. Changes in the Unicode Character -  Database since then may not be reflected in these files, since they are -  primarily of archival interest. -  - Index.txt (Chapter 14) -  -  * Informative index to Unicode characters, as printed in the Unicode -  Standard -  * Note: The information in NamesList.txt and Index.txt files matches the -  appropriate version of the book. Changes in the Unicode Character -  Database since then may not be reflected in these files, since they are -  primarily of archival interest. -  - CompositionExclusions.txt (UTR#15 Unicode Normalization Forms) -  -  * Normative properties for normalization. -  - LineBreak.txt (UTR #14: Line Breaking Properties) -  -  * Normative and informative properties for line breaking. To see which -  properties are informative and which are normative, consult UTR#14. -  - EastAsianWidth.txt (UTR #11: East Asian Character Width) -  -  * Informative properties for determining the choice of wide vs. narrow -  glyphs in East Asian contexts. -  - diffXvY.txt -  -  * Mechanically-generated informative files containing accumulated -  differences between successive versions of UnicodeData.txt + Except as contained in this notice, the name of a copyright holder + shall not be used in advertising or otherwise to promote the sale, use + or other dealings in these Data Files or Software without prior + written authorization of the copyright holder.
