Combining Diacritical Marks for Symbols

U+20D0 – U+20FF   (8400–8447)

The characters in this range are designed to be used in combination with symbols, to produce a symbol+diacritic that is not present in any of the Unicode ranges. For example, ∞⃐ to produce an infinity symbol with a left harpoon above (∞⃐). There are additional combining characters in the Combining Diacritical Marks and Combining Half Marks ranges.

The characters that appear in the first column of the following table include a lower case “o” to be combined with the diacritic, and depend on the browser that you are using, the fonts installed on your computer, and the browser options you have chosen that determine the fonts used to display particular character sets, encodings or languages.

You can find some or all of the characters in this range in the Windows Unicode fonts Arev Sans, Arial Unicode MS, Cambria Math, Caslon, Code2000, EversonMono, Free Sans, Free Serif, Hindsight Unicode, Monospace, Reader Sans, RomanCyrillic Std, SImPL, sixpack, STIXGeneral, Sun-ExtA, Symbola and YOzFontN.

To see exactly which characters are included in a particular font, you can use a utility such as Andrew West’s BabelMap, or WunderMoosen’s FontChecker.

If you are not familiar with the characters, you can check the characters displayed here with the graphical display at http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U20D0.pdf.
