This is a demonstration of the use of Unicode on your Website. These above are fonts, not images. You should be able to view them if you have the appropriate fonts installed. Windows XP users should be able to view them by default if they use Mozilla Firefox.

When you build a Website, you have the option to choose the encoding of the text. Typically people choose iso-8859-1, windows-1251 or similar encodings limited to just 255 characters. If you choose, however, utf-8, you can add any character from a repertoire of several thousand characters, from any written language, including symbols and dingbats.
