Unicode terms used
- A block in Unicode is a named, single continuous group of code points, e.g. Miscellaneous Symbols Unicode block with range U+2600–26FF. Each character is in one block. A block can include non/assigned code points, non/character codepoints etcetera.
- A script is related to speech (like the alphabet), symbols are related to their meaning (like chess-symbols). Symbols also include controls and Unicode-specials like Byte order mark(BOM). All defined Unicode characters are either in a script or a symbol.
- Charts are examples of glyphs, i.e. a rendered character (the "A" you read)
- Due to legacy character sets like ASCII, and due to intended usage of Unicode, multiple issues arise from pairs of characters with an overlapping meaning etc.
- Special characters have a Unicode-defined behavior.
- Miscellaneous lists are lists of characters that are not in one block. Cultural symbols like religious crosses are in different blocks.
- Scripts: Unicode as of version 5.2; Batak, Brāhmī, Mandaic: added as per version 6.0
