Combining Half Marks

U+FE20 – U+FE2F   (65056–65071)

The characters in this range are designed to be used in combination with other characters, to produce a character+half mark that is not present in any of the Unicode ranges. There are additional combining characters in the Combining Diacritical Marks and Combining Diacritical Marks for Symbols ranges.

The characters that appear in the “Character” columns of the following table include a lower case “o” to be combined with the half mark, 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 Aegean, Analecta, Arial, Arial Unicode MS, Code2000, Courier New, EversonMono, Kliment Std, LeedsUni, PakType Naqsh, Reader Sans, RomanCyrillic Std, Segoe UI, sixpack, Sun-ExtA, Symbola, Tahoma and Times New Roman. The Windows Unicode fonts Bitstream CyberBit and Bitstream CyberCJK are marked as containing this range, but this appears to be incorrect.

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/UFE20.pdf.
