⏸

Post by roedygr » Tue Jul 29, 2014 4:06 pm

Hex entity ⏸ generates this message:

"⏸" is an invalid character reference. This may be because the '&' character was not escaped as "&". To use a literal ampersand it must be encoded as "&" (even in URLs) because '&' is an escape character in HTML/XHTML.

It is an unusual char, two vertical bars, part of the APL group. It is not a control char. It has no named entity. It is 16 bit. I can't see any reason it should be considered invalid.

Thanks. I've updated the Unicode code points CSE HTML Validator recognizes for the next update to fix this problem.

Great. I'm glad it fixed it.

The only release notes are those here:

I realize it's not very specific. But the newly recognized Unicode references are part of the "other updates" and "user reported issues" that were addressed. :D
