Hi Stuart,

It isn't a question of normalisation. The relevant UAX is UAX 9 not UAX 15


My understanding is that without control characters controlling isolation or embedding levels for RTL text the BIBFRAME file could be malformed and have unintented results.

Obviously in certain uses the control characters would need to be stripped out. Ie when outputting to web the control characters should be stripped out and replaced with appropriate html markup.


> Many BIBFRAME applications are unlikely to do much text processing except for comparison and maybe sorting. In such cases you almost certainly want to pick a normalisation form a use it wherever possible, because it will make comparisons and sorting faster. See http://unicode.org/reports/tr15/
> If you're interoperating with legacy systems, you may need to add control codes to exported data.
