Gurmukhi

U+0A00 – U+0A7F   (2560–2687)

The Gurmukhi script is used for the Indo-Aryan Punjabi language, which is widely spoken in Pakistan and is also used in parts of India, where it is closely associated with Sikhs. Punjabi can also be written in the Devanagari and Arabic scripts. You can see some Punjabi using Unicode Gurmukhi on the 123BuildIt Multilingual E-commerce Solutions Web site and the Punjabi University Guru Kashi Campus Web site.

Microsoft Windows incorporates support for Gurmukhi Unicode from Windows XP onwards. Users of Macintosh computers running Mac OS 9 can install an Apple Language Kit that provides Gurmukhi suppport in various applications. Mac OS X incorporates support for Gurmukhi from version 10.2 onwards.

Gurmukhi Unicode Web pages with UTF-8 encoding are supported by Internet Explorer 5 (or higher) for Windows, Mozilla, Opera 6 (or higher), and the Safari and iCab Web browsers for Macintosh.
