MUFI character recommendation v. 2.0
MetadataShow full item record
The MUFI group has published a recommendation for the selection of characters from the Unicode Standard and for characters to be allocated to the Private Use Area (PUA). This recommendation coordinates the usage of PUA with several other fonts and font projects, notably the Titus project and Junicode. As of version 2.0 the recommendation has been divided into two parts, each containing the same number of characters, but in a different order. Part 1 lists the characters in alphabetical order, beginning with alphabetical characters and then giving numbers, abbreviation characters, punctuation characters, symbols, and finally geometrical and metrical characters. Part 2 lists the characters according to the code charts in the Unicode Standard. Part 1 is intended for casual users since it is fairly easy to find any particular character simply by browsing through the document on screen or in print. Part 2 is intended for encoders and font designers since it lists characters according to Unicode code charts and accordingly in ascending code point order. It also shows the structure of the Private Use Area more clearly than Part 1. In general, it contains more information than Part 1; it displays decommissions from version 1.0 to 2.0 on coloured background, it includes appendices specifying all changes from version 1.0 to 2.0, and it distinguishes between ISO entity names (where applicable) and MUFI recommended entity names.
The Medieval Unicode Font Initiative was founded in 2001 by scholars in Medieval studies with the aim of establishing a consensus on the use of Unicode among medievalists. It is not affiliated with or endorsed by Unicode. More information is available at http://www.mufi.info
