Move discussion in progress[edit]

There is a move discussion in progress on Talk:C0 controls and basic Latin which affects this page. Please participate on that page and not in this talk page section. Thank you. —RM bot 08:16, 6 October 2010 (UTC)

Chart[edit]

On my WinXP FF 3.6.17 system, the dot patterns are not shown in the chart - the "no glyph" glyph appears. But http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Unicode_characters#Braille_patterns shows the dot patterns. I suggest either copying that diagram, or linking to that diagram next to this diagram. 94.30.84.71 (talk) 20:24, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

query about Mac Font[edit]

How did y'all get the page to render on the Mac without the empty circles? I can't find anything in the CSS that would activate this, but it'd be great to have on my own braille outputted webpages. Thanks -- Michael Scott Cuthbert (talk) 16:29, 22 August 2011 (UTC)

I have a Macbook Pro with MacOS Snow Leopard and it ships with four different Braille fonts with choices for 6 or 8 points and circles or small dots. Therefore, I feel the statement about MacOSX's Braille Pattern fonts is inaccurate. --Ahyangyi (talk) 04:56, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: moved to Braille Patterns. Consensus at Talk:C0 Controls and Basic Latin#Unicode block names clear and comparatively recent. Favonian (talk) 21:52, 2 March 2012 (UTC)


Braille pattern blockBraille Patterns

This page was moved [1] from name Braille Patterns. I propose to move it back. The old name was correct and discussed into consensus. First, the old name is exactly the name of the Unicode block: braille patterns, and what this page is about. The naming was discussed at Talk:C0 Controls and Basic Latin#Unicode block names, which may count as an explicit consensus. The consensus is, that a page title of a Unicode block should be the exact block name (for all Unicode block pages). And since there is no ambiguity with the page name, no disambiguation addition is needed (like "(Unicode)"). Irrelevant now, but noteworthy, is that the current name "Braille pattern block" is not a crisp description of the topic (prior knowledge required to understand the name). Of course the redirect should cross too. -DePiep (talk) 17:35, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
