Unicode 5.1.0

Unicode 5.1.0 was released on the fourth this month. There’s still lots more scripts and repertoires to cover, but for me a few notable additions were made in this revision, for example…

Devanagari

  • u0971 DEVANAGARI SIGN HIGH SPACING DOT — though I’d rather use the common dot/full stop (u002E, ‘.’) in a specific language/script environment
  • u0972 DEVANAGARI LETTER CANDRA A

Miscellaneous symbols

  • u26B3 CERES
  • u26B4 PALLAS
  • u26B5 JUNO
  • u26B6 VESTA
  • u26B7 CHIRON
  • u26B8 BLACK MOON LILITH
  • u26B9 SEXTILE
  • u26BA SEMISEXTILE
  • u26BB QUINCUNX
  • u26BC SESQUIQUADRATE

Supplemental punctuation

  • u2E28 LEFT DOUBLE PARENTHESIS
  • u2E29 RIGHT DOUBLE PARENTHESIS
  • u2E2A TWO DOTS OVER ONE DOT PUNCTUATION
  • u2E2B ONE DOT OVER TWO DOTS PUNCTUATION
  • u2E2D FIVE DOT MARK

A small hooray for the additional punctuation marks (though they could have been handled as alternative glyphs) and a big hooray for the astrological symbols, now, where’s the rest!? :mrgreen:

An Astrological Font

I would like to learn to make a font, or rather several. Here are some of my astro-logical (‘stellar logic’!) thoughts.

Basically, I want to
• Learn and practise making fonts and art
• Have more free/open fonts available
• Be able to choose between different glyphs of the same symbol character
