Adobe Illustrator doesnʼt seem to support purple numbers, and Adobe Reader
seems unable to accept input of bookmarks as a go‐to feature (while that must
be proper to Acrobat). Word is reported not to add lasting change bars in an 
automated way. But all that can be done in HTML — which is not the format 
of The Unicode Standard, whose web bookmarks are fortunately published in 
separate collections. When UAXes are updated, an intermediate revision has 
all changes highlighted and remains available online. We can see delta charts 
with all changes highlighted, in PDF. Why did the Core Specification not come 
into the benefit of these facilities?
