From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This article contains Unicode 5.2 "Miscellaneous Technical" characters. Without proper rendering support, you may see question marks, boxes, or other symbols instead of something like "10" (Decimal Exponent Symbol U+23E8).

In 1964 the GOST standards body of the Soviet Union defined the standard for encoding data. This standard allowed a variable character size - depending on the type of data being encoded.

GOST 10859 only allowed uppercase characters. Subsequent Soviet standards included lowercase:

  1. GOST 19768/74
  2. GOST 19768/87
  3. GOST 13052

These include the non-ASCII "⏨" (Decimal Exponent Symbol U+23E8). It was used to express real numbers in Scientific notation. For example: 6.0221415⏨23.

The "⏨" character was also part of the ALGOL programming language specifications, and was also incorporated into the then German character encoding standard ALCOR. GOST 10859 also included numerous other non-ASCII characters/symbols useful to ALGOL programmers, eg: ∨, ∧, ⊃, ≡, ¬, ≠, ↑, ↓, ×, ÷, ≤, ≥, ° & ∅. c.f. ALGOL operators[1].

The "␡" character served the same function as the "␡" in 7-bit ASCII.
