#21741 new defect

Unicode 'Modifier Letter Colon' (U+A789) gives spurious warning

Reported by: kennykb@… Owned by: team
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Core validator Version:
Keywords: template_report unicode Cc:


What steps will reproduce the problem?

  1. Give a node or way a Haudenosaunee name such as "name=Onë꞉dagö꞉h"
  2. Run the validator

What is the expected result?

Name is valid

What happens instead?

Spurious warning appears: 'Tag value contains unusual Unicode character U+A789 - Tag 'name' invalid.

Please provide any additional information below. Attach a screenshot if possible.

This happened when I was editing minor civil divisions in New York State that lie partially on entirely on land belonging to the Six Nations of the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois Confederacy).

Note that in the attached screenshot, the 'name' tag is bilingual, and my JOSM is localized to English, so the 'name:en' value appears under the objects.

Vowels such as 'e꞉' and 'ö꞉' are common in Haundenosaunee langages such as Kanienʼkéha (Mohawk) or Onötowáʼka꞉ (Seneca).
