Tyamamot's Feedback

Breakdown of MVO feedback from Yamamoto-san's proposal.

  • IPR symbols requested to be sideways, due to being derived from Western letters:
    • U+00A9 © COPYRIGHT SIGN
    • U+00AE ® REGISTERED SIGN
    • U+2117 ℗ SOUND RECORDING COPYRIGHT
    • U+2120 ℠ SERVICE MARK
    • U+2122 ™ TRADE MARK SIGN
  • Footnote symbols and related requested to be sideways, due to being more commonly Western. (Also: asterisk (*) is sideways by default, double vertical line (‖) is drawn rotated by vertical fonts, and section (§) is used with numbers, which are usually sideways.)
    • U+00A7 § SECTION SIGN
    • U+00B6 ¶ PILCROW SIGN
    • U+2016 ‖ DOUBLE VERTICAL LINE
    • U+2020 † DAGGER
    • U+2021 ‡ DOUBLE DAGGER
    • U+2042 ⁂ ASTERISM
    • U+2051 ⁑ TWO ASTERISKS ALIGNED VERTICALLY
  • Curly quotes requested to be sideways because primarily used within Western snippets. Since double quotes are already sideways, affected codepoints are:
    • U+2018 ‘ LEFT SINGLE QUOTATION MARK
    • U+2019 ’ RIGHT SINGLE QUOTATION MARK
  • Letterlike Letters requested to be sideways EXCEPT
    • U+2139 ℹ INFORMATION SOURCE
  • Letterlike Symbols requested be sideways EXCEPT
    • U+2103 ℃ DEGREE CELSIUS
    • U+2109 ℉ DEGREE FAHRENHEIT
    • U+2116 № NUMERO SIGN
    • U+2121 ℡ TELEPHONE SIGN
    • U+213A ℺ ROTATED CAPITAL Q
    • U+213B ℻ FACSIMILE SIGN
  • Per mille / per ten-thousand sign requested to be sideways because too wide to fit upright in lines and often used with digits (sideways)
    • U+2030 ‰ PER MILLE
    • U+2031 ‱ PER TEN THOUSANDS
  • Interrobang requested to be sideways because originated in Western typography and uncommon in East Asian
    • U+203D ‽ INTERROBANG
  • Musical symbols (U+1D000–U+1D1FF) requested be sideways because proportional, see Forum post
  • Canadian Syllabics (U+1401–U+167F,U+18B0–U+18FF) requested to be sideways because this appears to be a UTR50 error.
