Basic Multilingual Plane

<text, standard> (BMP) The first plane defined in Unicode/ISO 10646, designed to include all scripts in active modern use.

The BMP currently includes the Latin, Greek, Cyrillic, Devangari, hiragana, katakana, and Cherokee scripts, among others, and a large body of mathematical, APL-related, and other miscellaneous characters.

Most of the Han {ideographs} in current use are present in the BMP, but due to the large number of ideographs, many were placed in the Supplementary Ideographic Plane.
