Hi Naoto

+ * The code point, U+32FF, is reserved by the Unicode Consortium
+ * to represent the Japanese square character for the new era that begins
+ * from May, 2019. Relevant methods in the Character class return the same
+ * properties as for the existing Japanese era characters (e.g., U+337E for
+ * "Meizi"). For the details of the code point, refer to
+ * <a href="http://blog.unicode.org/2018/09/new-japanese-era.html">
+ * http://blog.unicode.org/2018/09/new-japanese-era.html</a>

Is “from” needed in the the above or could it be

… era that begins May, 2019 ?

Also is there a change that the URL for the blog could disappear or are they typically a constant and do not change
