Re: forbiddenCharacters data category - related to [ACTIOn-189]


Aside from some truly minor language issues (I wish I could come close to writing another language as you do in English), this looks good to me. I would add one bit of text:

Note: Because the contents of this category specify forbidden characters, implementers need to pay special attention when converting ranges that specify allowed characters to ensure that they select ranges appropriately.

Seems like an obvious thing, but our syntax essentially reverses the normal syntax of regex (because it is used in a negative context), so it can't hurt to emphasize the point.
