U+FFF0 – U+FFFF   (65520–65535)

The characters that appear in the first column 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.

You can find some or all of the characters in this range in the Windows Unicode fonts Aegean, Akkadian, Arial Unicode MS, Charis SIL, Code2000, Doulos SIL, EversonMono, sixpack, Symbola and Tibetan Machine Uni.

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/UFFF0.pdf.
