Cypriot syllabary font support[edit]

Does anyone know how to achieve this on windows xp? Done it myself, you have to enable it in your Regional Options: Look at this screenshot --www.doc 21:29, 31 March 2006 (UTC)

See http://www.i18nguy.com/surrogates.html, for a free font that supports Cypriot, see http://home.att.net/~jameskass/code2001.htm.--84.160.219.229 13:03, 22 June 2006 (UTC)
It might be nice to have images of the syllabary, since most "stock" computer systems will not support these characters without special font downloads... AnonMoos (talk) 19:16, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Hey Jasmine! Your expanded paragraphs are pretty good. They are pretty clear and concise. Two things that I could potentially add if you want: 1) What is like a "modern descendant" of Cypriot syllabary? If there isn't one then never mind this question; 2) since the Cypriot syllabary was deciphered, you might want to talk a little bit more about how they came to decipher it. Otherwise, everything's fine. Lunabunny (talk) 07:00, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

Decipherment conflict[edit]

In the first paragraph of "Decipherment", it says no inscriptions are known before the 8th Century, but then under "Enkomi" it mentions a tablet dated to around 1500 BCE.

Can anyone confirm which it is? iPhil (talk) 11:05, 9 December 2012 (UTC)
