Re: Quest text 2017 font for experimental chess encoding

Yes, still the same. I can post the text here, I can copy it back, yet the copy, although it displays well is not quite the same.

An experiment. I have the text for the above diagrams in the PagePlus X7 desktop publishing program on my computer. The experiment is to copy the text from there and paste it twice into this web page, once in text, once in a code panel. After that, to clear the clipboard on my computer by copying an...

Re: Adding Ligatures in place of Kerning.

> Putting in all the ligatures by hand would be a real pain. Well, yes maybe, if there are a lot of them, but if time is not critical and the end result is desired, then maybe producing the end result is worth the extra effort. One possibility is to produce a PDF (Portable Document Format) document ...

Re: Adding Ligatures in place of Kerning.

Well, if you are simply trying to produce a good display so as to produce a graphic or a print out, you could try mapping the ligature glyph directly to a Private Use Area code point in the font and then inserting the ligature into the application using an Insert Symbol facility or even getting the ...

Re: Unicode Brings Skin Tones to Snowboarders

If you look at the bytes inside a file saved from Microsoft WordPad as a Unicode Text Document, there is a BOM character, that is a ZWNBSP character, at the start of the file so as to show in which order the 8-bit bytes of the 16-bit UTF-16characters are stored, that is whether they are stored as HI...
