What is a 'Unicode symbol'?[edit]

I have read nott about a Unicode symbol in Unicode] or other sources. I think "Unicode symbols" is not defined, and is even misleading (as if Unicode created symbols?). If the title is not based, we'd better to move it to Symbols in Unicode. -DePiep (talk) 08:08, 15 March 2014 (UTC)

Reference #2 does not seem accurate.[edit]

The statement, "Unicode Standard 5.0; Chapter 12 (p302)" seems to point to the wrong chapter and incorrect page of the document stated. Is the citation from a different version?

The page number appears to point to chapter 9 in the online edition of version 5.0:


Chapter 12 of that version, doesn't deal with electronic symbols. It deals with East Asian scripts.

The subject of the citation appears to be, "For example, the typical two-dimensional arrangement of electronic diagram symbols justifies their exclusion."

If the citation is correct, it should clarify whether it references the hardcover or digital version?

The link you provide (version 5.0) has title: "Chapter 9, East Asian Scripts-I", and has (book-)pagenumbers 295 and up. [1].
To cut things short (insted of digging in previous situations)), we better use a source from current version 8.0. Chapter 22 is "Symbols" [2]. The quote (altered after version 5) "intended for two-dimensional diagrammatic use, such as most symbols for electronic circuits" appears on page 36/59-pdf (783 print).
I suggest we use this source instead of any older one. -DePiep (talk) 11:28, 30 October 2015 (UTC)
