Modifier Tone Letters

U+A700 – U+A71F   (42752–42783)

The Modifier Tone Letters range was introduced with version 4.1 of the Unicode Standard, and is located in Plane 0, the Basic Multilingual Plane. These characters are for marking tones in various scripts; there are other tone marks and tone letters in the Spacing Modifier Letters range.

The characters that appear in the “Character” columns of the following table 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 Charis SIL, Code2000, DejaVu Sans, DejaVu Sans Condensed, DejaVu Sans Mono, DejaVu Serif, DejaVu Serif Condensed, Doulos SIL, Quivira, RomanCyrillic Std, Segoe UI (few) and Sun-ExtA (few).

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/UA700.pdf.
