ISO updates[edit]

The ISO 15924 list of script codes is updated regularly, usually at least once a year. The current list is complete as of 7 July 2015, and defines 177 codes (code, number, script name).

Note: when resolving red links or wrong links, edit {{ISO 15924/wp-name}} or {{ISO 15924/wp-category}}. That is where the connection between ISO code and Wikipedia names is made.
