Section has the following listed in Table 51: ctype<char> , ctype<wchar_t>.

Also Section [locale.ctype] says:

The instantiations required in Table 51 ( namely ctype<char> and ctype<wchar_t> , implement character classing appropriate to the implementation's native character set.

However, Section [facet.ctype.special] only has a detailed description of the ctype<char> specialization, not the ctype<wchar_t> specialization.

Proposed resolution:

Add the ctype<wchar_t> detailed class description to Section [facet.ctype.special].


Specialization for wchar_t is not needed since the default is acceptable.
