Ancient Greek Numerals
Characters for irrational numbers, sets and other constants
The Planck constant is a dimensional quantity, not a number. It does not differ, conceptually, from a unit of measurement. Something is apparently misunderstood either in the standard or in this interpretation. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 14:03, 19 August 2011 (UTC)
The into contains:
"The decimal digits are repeated in 23 separate blocks: twice in Arabic. Six additional blocks contain the digits again as rich text or legacy software compatibility characters"
It's not being made cleat why there is a colon after "blocks", it looks like it's starting a list to explain the details of the 23 seperate blocks, but it fizzles out after two and six.
So, why the Roman numerals block?
From the section on Roman numerals:
One reason for the existence of pre-combined numbers is to facilitate the setting of multiple-letter numbers (such as VIII) in a single "square" in Asian vertical text. Another reason is for 12-hour clock-face use.
The characters in the range U+2160–217F are present only for compatibility with other character set standards which provide these characters.
This seems contradictory: first use cases is presented, but then these are effectively negated. Which is the rationale for including these characters in Unicode? QVVERTYVS (hm?) 16:08, 4 November 2015 (UTC)
