General category "Nd" in the Unicode specification. Characters are classified with a Numeric type.

The Unicode Standard is an international encoding system for digital text. It has blocks of different characters. One is the Basic Latin block, which has characters from languages spoken in Western Europe and North America, such as English and other European languages. These characters include letters, numbers, and symbols. Another subgroup is the decimal digit numbers block, which has ten basic numerical characters. These characters can be used to represent numerical data or perform calculations in applications such as spreadsheets, forms or mathematical equations. These numbers range from 0 to 9. They are very useful in entering numerical data into software programs without needing to use a full-sized keyboard or number pad. The Unicode Standard provides an efficient way to encode digital text from virtually any language. Its basic Latin block is no exception. With its rich collection of characters and symbols, it can be used for a wide range of applications, from everyday text input tasks to specialized scientific calculations. The decimal digit numbers subgroup is particularly useful for quick numerical input when working with forms, spreadsheets, or other mathematical programs.
