About The Codes

Use these codes if you need to insert a word or short phrase within a multilingual text.

Declare Unicode Encoding

The codes listed below are valid for Unicode HTML pages only, and may not work on very old browsers. To make your page a Unicode page, add the following meta tag to the <head> portion of your document.

<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
...
<head>

If you forget to include this tag, then some browsers, such as Netscape 4.7, may not display the characters properly.

XHTML

The final close slash must be included after the final quote mark in the encoding header tag if you are using XHTML

<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
...
<head>

No Encoding Declared

If no encoding is declared, then the browser uses the default setting, which in the U.S. is typically Latin-1. In that case many Unicode characters could be displayed incorrectly. Also, older browsers such as Netscape 4.7 may not be able to process the entity codes correctly without the "utf-8" declaration.

Using the Entity Codes

The Unicode numeric entity codes can be expressed as either decimal numbers or hexadecimal numbers. When codes for combining signs are inputted, they are placed on the adjacent letter.

For instance, the decimal version of the Gurmukhi (ਗੁਰਮੁਖੀ) would be &#2583;&#2625;&#2608;&#2606;&#2625;&#2582;&#2624;

The hexadecimal version of Gurmukhi (ਗੁਰਮੁਖੀ) is
&#x0A17;&#x0A41;&#x0A30;&#x0A2E;&#x0A41;&#xA16;&#x0A40;
Note that the hexadecimal numbers include x as part of the code.

Note that there are no specific codes for conjunct consonants. Unicode Gurmukhi fonts and Unicode text editors will theoretically handle the display of conjunct consonants.

Windows Word Numeric Alt Codes

Use ALT plus the decimal version of any code to input it into a Windows document.

Note: These work only in Word 2003+ for Windows. Users with other software or versions of Windows may wish to use the Character Map instead.

OS X Option Codes

If an application supports the Unicode Hex input Keyboard, then use Option plus the hexadecimal number.
