Searching Tips

To perform a search, type what you are looking for into the search box, and then click the “Search” button.

Search for multiple words
If you enter more than one word, you will find all of the pages that contain one or more of the words that you entered.

Require a term to be present
Use a plus sign in front of any words or phrases that must appear in the search results. Do not leave a space between the plus sign and the search term. Any phrase that you use with a plus sign must be contained within quotation marks; without the quotation marks only the first word will be treated as required.
For example:   +thai +currency

Search for a phrase
If you are confident that you know the Unicode name of a character, enclose it in quotation marks and only documents that include that phrase will be retrieved. Without the qotation marks, the search will find all pages that include one or more of the words in the phrase.
For example:   "latin capital letter a with macron"

Don’t worry about capitalization
You can enter your search terms in lower, upper or mixed case – you will get the same result.

Require a term to be absent
Use a hyphen (representing a minus sign) in front of any words or phrases that must not appear in the search results. Do not leave a space between the hyphen and the term. Any phrase that you use with a hyphen must be contained within quotation marks; without the quotation marks only the first word will be excluded.

Use field searches
Field searches allow you to create specific searches for words that appear in a specific part of a page. A field search can be performed on body text (body:), title text (title:), alt text (alt:), meta description (desc:), meta keywords (keys:) or URL (url:). The field name should be in lowercase and immediately followed by a colon. There should be no spaces between the colon and the search term.

Note: The field searches can only be followed by a word or phrase. Phrases must be contained within quotation marks.

List of indexed pages

The search index for Unicode characters is derived from the following pages:
