Annex B should use Unicode 3.0

The current character tables in annex B are based on Unicode
2.0. Unfortunately, that results in confusing classifications. For
example, U+212E, ESTIMATED SYMBOL, is allowed as a BaseChar. In
Unicode 3.0, it is classified as So (Symbol, Other), and would not be
allowed as a letter.

Martin
