Character Usage


This chapter describes different character blocks and collections that are practically important, especially in the Western world. The first section is of a more generic nature and discusses the relationship of character standards, orthography, and typography. All the Unicode blocks are briefly characterized to give an overview, but the emphasis is on ASCII, different Latin supplements, General Punctuation, and mathematical and technical symbols.

For information on ideographic characters and processing of East Asian languages, see Ken Lunde's CJKV Information Processing (O'Reilly).
