Page name contains undisplayable character[edit]

This is an example of a Wikipedia title that won't display properly on my computer. Even though I have a UNICODE font downloaded (which I imagine most English users won't) I still see "Khar**hi" where the * is an open rectangle denoting a missing character.

I can understand the importance of faithful preservation of foreign references in English text, although it leads to supposedly English-language articles that are unpronounceable by English speakers and often unrenderable on computers configured for English speakers.

If the English Wikipedia is going to run the gamut of foreign language characters, it would be nice to provide a simplified download and installation of the font(s) required to display those characters. User:24.147.11.214 13:08, 25 October 2005‎ (UTC)

  • I strongly agree with the above unsigned suggestion. Can anyone please make any suggestions as to how we can get more diacritics added to the characters availabel for editing WP articles? John Hill (talk) 02:26, 22 February 2011 (UTC)
  • The whole alphabet table does not display on my browser either. The entries should preferably be images, with the UNICODE characters besides them (or in a separate table), possibly linked to entries in some UNICODE database. --Jorge Stolfi (talk) 18:10, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

KharosthiKharosthi script

  • I'm not completely opposed to this, but it warrants discussion. Cyrillic script is WP:PRECISE because there are other uses of "Cyrillic." That doesn't seem to be the case here. --BDD (talk) 16:16, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose. There's far too much unnecessary in-title disambiguation within Wikipedia. Imc (talk) 19:29, 16 March 2013 (UTC)
