Variation Selectors Supplement

U+E0100 – U+E01EF   (917760–917999)

The Variation Selectors Supplement range was introduced with version 4.0 of the Unicode Standard and is located in Plane 14 (the Supplementary Special-purpose Plane). Windows XP and later versions support supplementary characters by default. In Windows 2000, you need to enable support for supplementary characters. These characters cannot easily be displayed in earlier versions of Windows.

Most Unicode characters can be represented by a wide variety of glyphs, and in rich text a particular glyph can be indicated by choosing a particular font or style. This mechanism is not available in plain text, and so variation selectors have been introduced as a way of indicating that the glyphs applicable to a particular character should be changed or restricted. The base character is followed by the variation selector, the combination being called a variation sequence. This is not intended to be general-purpose mechanism, and the only permitted variation sequences are those defined in the Standardized Variants file, which forms part of the Unicode Character Database.

You can find some or all of the characters in this range in the Windows Unicode font YOzFontN.

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

The characters in this range are not applicable in HTML, and therefore only the code points and names are shown in the following table. You can see a graphical display of the characters at http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/UE0100.pdf.
