Comment #1 on 'Why the -Latn tag?' by raymondmj on 2017-01-25 13:57:53

Our ScriptSource policy has always been to include the script code in tags for writing systems unless "Suppress script" is specified for the language in the  IANA language subtag registry. That means the script code is almost always specified. However we are reviewing our language tagging policy, so that may well change.

2017-02-13 04:43:02 Why the -Latn tag?

Comment #2 on 'ISO 639-3 page for Seraiki' by raymondmj on 2015-06-03 05:26:02

You are correct that the language name has recently been changed on ISO 639-3. We update our language information periodically from ISO 639-3 and Ethnologue; when we next run the update, the language name will be changed to Saraiki on ScriptSource.

Comment #1 on 'Mistaken entry in locale data for Kwasio' by raymondmj on 2015-04-13 03:45:38

We have now updated ScriptSource with more recent CLDR data, and our character list on this page matches the data on the CLDR. Please note, however, that the precomposed characters you mention, such as <011B> and <01D4> are still part of the CLDR data: it is only the character sequences with breve which have been changed to use caron instead.

Comment #1 on 'Devanagari Transliteration' by raymondmj on 2014-10-10 03:33:52

Comments on behalf of H S Sharma:

I find Harvard-kyoto is more suitable. There are two comments I wish to place as below:

1: z for श if changed into sh then it is more appropriate.
2: Without vowels all consonants are hal. Therefore no need of capital .M for anusvAra and .H for visarga.
