go to the gallery home pageComprehensive Unicode Test Page for Cirth

Cirth is not part of the Unicode Standard. This page tests the Unicode Private Use Area defined for Tolkien's Cirth Runes (U+E080 - U+E0EF) by the ConScript Unicode Registry (last revised 1997-11-03, current as of 2006-01-31).

It is laid out in a grid format for easy comparison against the CSUR's code chart.

Information from the discussion paper linked from the code chart page was also used.

This test page is part of the Gallery of Unicode Fonts.

pick the desired font name

from this list    - or -       by typing in the exact font name

The selected font must be installed on your system. This page might not display properly with older versions of Internet Explorer or Netscape. Additionally, Netscape & Firefox may show an unsupported character using a different font to the one selected. Internet Explorer seems to do this too, but to a much lesser extent.

Reserved/unallocated codepoints are shown with a gray background.

Combining and non-spacing codepoints are preceded with a non-breaking space and are shown with a  dashed border 

Placing your cursor over any of the characters in the chart shows the codepoint and its name from the ConScript Unicode Registry. This may not work with some browsers.
