New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I am about to assign a bunch (approx. 500) of Private Use UNICODE to the following which do not have official UNICODES and are not yet [to my knowledge] covered by Adobe Glyph List:
Small Cap Numbers
Small Caps Punctuation
Titling Capitals (x140ish)
Titling Lowercase (x140ish)
Reversed Encapsulated Sansserif Capitals
and perhaps a few other ornaments (not dingbats) etc.
Q. Are there any established Code-blocks for the listed glyphs above *agreed* between foundries?
I am posting here before approaching anyone individually. My next step is to check the future of the Adobe Glyph List but first I want to gauge the reaction to having so many apparently missing UNICODES.
If it seems reasonable, perhaps I may make a formal proposal to UNICODE Consortium. It feels better for me to push for some kind of universal acceptance of principle and/or get a better understanding of peoples feeling towards this before I go ahead and assign my one Private Use UNICODES to my own fonts regardless.
I am conscious that if the above Glyphs can have UNICODES shared amongst the Community this will make fonts sharing the UNICODE compatible and easily interchangeable.
