Unicode 5.0 Character Samples
Some samples of characters added in Unicode 5.0 are provided here for the purpose of demonstration or performing browser testing.
5 samples of characters added in Unicode 5.0 standard published in 2006 are listed below with their glyphs, code points, code names and code blocks. If you see nothing or something strange between brackets in "Glyph Browser" column, you know that your browser (and the operating system) does not support this character.
Glyph Glyph Code Code Browser Expected Point Name (ߞ) U+007DE (NKO LETTER KA) Code Block: NKo (᭓) U+01B53 (BALINESE DIGIT THREE) Code Block: Balinese (Ⱶ) U+02C75 (LATIN CAPITAL LETTER HALF H) Code Block: Latin Extended-C (ꡐ) U+0A850 (PHAGS-PA LETTER TSA) Code Block: Phags-pa (𒅗) U+12157 (CUNEIFORM SIGN KA) Code Block: Cuneiform
My tests show that Windows 7 is still not support some Unicode 5.0 characters, like the BALINESE DIGIT THREE character and the CUNEIFORM SIGN KA character 9 years after Unicode 5.0 was published.
Note that PDF generation tools may support different subsets of Unicode 5.0 characters, depending on which font files are used.
