Unicode Mar 31, 2006

The Unicode hexadecimal numbers for the circled alphanumerics are:

Numbers (1 -20): 2460 – 2473
Letters (upper and lower case): 24B6 – 24E9

and are all to be found in the Arial Unicode MS and Code2000 fonts. Finding or writing a keyboard mapping to associate with these characters is another matter.

Caution about Arial Unicode Apr 3, 2006


...and are all to be found in the Arial Unicode MS and Code2000 fonts.


Just an FYI that Arial Unicode is a font to stay away from; even MS says it should used only as a last resort. One problem is that it has tendency to try to download itself in its entirety to printers, and it's a 20-meg font (or something very high).

Even my own experience and anecdotal knowledge has found Arial Unicode to be a real pain-in-the-rear.

Enclosed Alphanumerics Apr 3, 2006

This page may be of interest:

http://www.alanwood.net/unicode/enclosed_alphanumerics.html

unless you really want to pay out $22 for the Circle Frame font or something similar (which I would guess is already mapped to the keyboard but not (strictly) Unicode).
