Macintosh Unicode Diacritic Fonts

Contributor(s): Than Grove

Unicode is fully implemented only with Mac OS X. Previous operating systems on the Mac do not have the capability to provide the full range of diacritics used in Asian studies. The information provided here is a summary of information found at external link: Alan Wood's Unicode fonts for Macintosh OS X computers. The fonts listed have not been reviewed by the THL and therefore are not rated.
