Mongolian variants chart rewritten


The comparison chart at has 
been significantly changed. Those changes include the following:

- the NP column is now the DS01 column and reflects the state of that 
document as of 25 Nov 2016. Expected updates to the document are shown 
using "[current] ≫ [expected]".

- i added a column for L2/16-309 (the output of the Hohot discussions) 
as of 26 Oct 2016.  Differences between DS01 and L2/16-309 are all 
highlighted for quick reference.

- i also added a column for the Unicode Standard v9 chart data, and 
again highlighted differences from DS01 or L2/16-309. To see this 
column, click on the vertical blue bar, bottom right, then set Hidden 
Columns to Show.

- showing the hidden columns also shows a usage column and a notes 
column (information in both cases taken from L2/16-309).

- all the font information has been rechecked

- other editorial changes include the hiding of former notes, and the 
simplification and update of the page intro.

Another significant development is the creation of a shape index at

This document lists all shapes used in the page Mongolian Variants, and 
enables you to jump to the appropriate table in that page.

The classification used is not intended to be etymologically or 
philosophically pure. It is intended as a simple practical tool to help 
locate shapes, and one that also works for novices.

I hope these changes will help us identify and resolve the remaining 
differences between the documents. I will update these pages as the 
source documents change (please advise me when new versions are 
developed).  Of course, comments are welcome.

hope that helps,
