Script tags

Script tags generally correspond to a Unicode script. However, the associations between them may not always be one-to-one, and the OpenType script tags are not guaranteed to be the same as Unicode Script property-value aliases or ISO 15924 script IDs. Since the development of OpenType script tags predates the ISO 15924 or Unicode Script property, the rules for script tags defined in this document may not always be the same as rules for ISO 15924 script IDs. The OpenType script tags can also correlate with a particular OpenType Layout implementation, with the result that more than one script tag may be registered for a given Unicode script (e.g. 'deva' and 'dev2').

All tags are four-character strings composed of a limited set of ASCII characters; for details regarding the Tag data type, see Data Types. By convention, registered script tags use four lowercase letters.

Use and processing of script tags in Script Records is described in the Script List Table and Script Record section of the OpenType Layout Common Table Formats chapter.
