Special Characters in Aletheia

Last Change: 27 November 2013 The following table comprises all special characters which are currently available through the virtual keyboard integrated in Aletheia. The virtual keyboard aids re-keying of historical documents containing characters that are mostly unsupported in other text editing tools (see Figure 1).

Figure 1: Text input dialogue with virtual keyboard in Aletheia 1.2

Due to technical reasons, like font definition, Aletheia uses only precomposed characters. If required for other applications the mapping between a precomposed character and the corresponding decomposed character sequence is given in the table as well. When writing to files Aletheia encodes all characters in UTF-8 (variable-length multi-byte representation).

Key: Glyph the icon displayed in the virtual keyboard. Unicode the actual Unicode character; can be copied and pasted into other applications. Please note that special characters might not be displayed properly if there is no corresponding font installed for the target application. Hex the hexadecimal code point for the Unicode character Decimal the decimal code point for the Unicode character Description a short description of the special character Origin where this character has been defined Base the base character of the special character (if applicable), used for sorting Combining Character combining character(s) to modify the base character (if applicable)
