Revision of the DS Schedule
for Local History and Description of China

Purposes of the revision:

  1. Limit DS796 to national municipalities and special administrative regions other than Beijing, which remains at DS795.
  2. Establish a new span of numbers at DS797.22-DS797.88 to arrange cities, prefectures, counties, etc., alphabetically by established pinyin names under decimal numbers for each province. Counties were previously classed in DS793.

This revision is in effect after October 1, 2000, Day One for using pinyin for Chinese geographic name headings.
