Unicode BMP Fallback Font

Bob Hallissy, 2012-03-26

Intended for debugging, this font contains a glyph for every character in the Basic Multilingual plane (including Private Use Area) of Unicode, each glyph consisting of a box enclosing the four hex digits identifying the Unicode scalar value.

Updated!

Now contains glyphs for all Unicode 6.1 BMP characters, and released (with source) under OFL 1.1.

Contents

Installation

Download UnicodeBMPFallback-6.1.zip from the link below. Extract the UnicodeBMPFallback.ttf file from the archive. Drag the .ttf file into the your system's Fonts folder.

Known issues

Due to the way Windows Vista qualifies fonts for Indic scripts, Vista will not display Indic scripts using this font. Other operating systems will.

Current version

This edition of the Unicode BMP Fallback font is released under the SIL Open Font License.
