Limbu

U+1900 – U+194F   (6400–6479)

The Limbu range was introduced with version 4.0 of the Unicode Standard, and is located in Plane 0, the Basic Multilingual Plane.

The Limbu script (also known as Kirant, Kiranti, Kirat and Sirijonga) is a syllabic alphabet used for the Limbu language, which belongs to the East Himalayish group and is used by some people in eastern Nepal and in the adjoining Indian states of Sikkim and West Bengal. You can see some Unicode Limbu on the Limbu Unicode Sample page.

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.

For users of Macintosh OS X 10.2, a commercial Limbu Language Kit with a Unicode font and a keyboard layout is available from XenoType Technologies. Free copies are available if you are working to preserve the Limbu language.

You can find some or all of the characters in this range in the Windows Unicode fonts Code2000, MPH 2B Damase and Sun-ExtA.

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

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/U1900.pdf.
