Re: Inputting mixed SC/TC (Re: [idn] A question...)
The problems of TC/SC related to IDN is only the term --Does we need
comparison of identifier, character by character without to care it is TC or
In the Total Listing Table of Simplified Characters (簡化字總表) , it
define this one way mapping .
(U+53eA 只) <-- (U+96bb 隻)
(U+53eA 只) <-- (U+8879 衹)
In a old book before 1949 , you can find " 衹要..." , "一隻..." are the
traditional using of these characters. If you want to do reverse mapping
from SC to TC , these 1-n pair can be very easy to do it , If you can
accept that table is one way mapping .
(U+53ea 只) --> (U+53ea 只)
In Taiwan , you write "只要..." , "一只...." , we all know it . Only a
Chinese Literature Expert will argue "一只碗" , "一隻鳥" are different ,
it is used in literature not a simple identifier od domain name.
If (U+53ea, U+96bb, U+8879) are not accepted as equivalent set ,
why not remove it from the table ? But as an identifier , comparing of
these 3 characters as the same is easy and simple .
Because there are Japan, Korean are all use these Han characters ,
this example (U+53eA 只) is more complex, you can find UNICODE 3.1.1
Unihan.txt have all the related variant listed. From Unihan.txt , it
records each character as following:
(U+8879) is the traditional variant of (U+53EA)
(U+6B62) (U+7957) (U+96BB) are all the variant of (U+53EA)
(U+53EA) is the simplified variant of (U+8879)
To get an identical variant equivalent table may be need more time in UTC
to do it , but in IDN WG we need a presentation method/scheme to help DNS
server can do comparison without to care the variant .
Whether the variant equivalent table is global or local , we all
1. An interface or scheme that can pass the equivalent result and its
related information to IDNA, the current draft need to clarify it.
2. A scheme or encoding mechanism to treat the equivalent result and
related information to convert them to ACE string and that string can do
comparison without to care variants in LDH-DNS server.
3. To recognize current last call drafts are not enough to solve these
variant problems related to IDN identifier. IDN WG must be very careful to
announce the result to avoid the irreversible deployment of CJK IDN.
4. CJK area should find a way/stage to do CJK IDN registration to reduce
the ambiguity of variant characters and try to find a way to get a/some
final CJK variant equivalent table(s) to be used in identifier of domain
