I just wanted to share that I added two comments to the wiki.

One is about CJK compatibility ideographs, as we all know by now. Interestingly, when I wanted to add an example, either my browser or Wiki does normalize the form submission, and therefore I had to use &#x... to enter characters I want to type. I hope our work on charmed-norm and working with other WG can resolve this kind of problems in future.

The other is about U+2000-2FFF, which Apple HFS+ makes exemption from applying NFD. I'm investigating what made them the decision and examples of issues. I'll keep posted if I find something there.

Subject: Normalization recommendations wiki page...


I have started building a normalization page in our wiki here:


For starters, I pasted, verbatim, the normative text from CharMod-Norm (http://www.w3.org/TR/charmod-norm) into the document. Below that I started a section called "Draft Recommendations" into which I began to boil and sift the various things we'd need to say normatively if we were to revise Charmod-Norm.

Obviously, the recommendations are very rough. Changing to non-normalization of content leads to requirements that I'm not sure this WG intends--there is a tendency to need to forbid normalization ever occur.

Anyway, it is something to start from.

Internationalization is not a feature.
It is an architecture.
