Description

Specifies the shape of digits in Unicode languages. By default, the digits 0–9 are displayed with the appropriate digit shape for the default locale (presuming that the appropriate font is available). The value of this entry determines whether the digits 0–9 are forced to display as European digits.

 

Value Meaning

The shape of the digits depends on the context.

1

Digits are diplayed according to the default locale.

2

Digit shapes are determined by the sNativeDigits entry.

When the value of this entry is 0, European digits follow Latin text, Arabic-Indic digits follow Arabic text, and Thai digits follow Thai text. When there is no preceding text, the system takes both the locale and the displayed reading order into consideration, as shown in the following table.
