Subject: gb 18030 mapping available
Yesterday, I received the re-released mapping table for GB 18030.
I updated the ICU implementation with this, in time for ICU 1.7.
George and I also converted the mapping data into XML format, using the new <range> element that was accepted at the last UTC meeting to avoid listing 1.1 million assignments.
You will find this data linked from the ICU homepage, http://oss.software.ibm.com/icu/ - see "News/Events" on the right side.
Note that single surrogates are not mapped any more, and that the Euro sign was moved from GB+80 to GB+A2E3. There are no fallback mappings any more, only roundtrip mappings.
