Vertical Forms

U+FE10 – U+FE1F   (65040–65055)

The Vertical Forms range was introduced with version 4.1 of the Unicode Standard, and is located in Plane 0, the Basic Multilingual Plane. These characters are intended to permit roundtrip mapping between Unicode and GB 18030 and HKSCS.

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.

You can find some or all of the characters in this range in the Windows Unicode fonts BabelStone Han, Malgun Gothic, Sun-ExtA, Symbola and UnBatang.

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/UFE10.pdf.
