Fonts[edit]

What are some fonts which support this character? Also, the text says that the ON version had more of a slant while the OE version was more straight, I could've sworn it was the other way around? —ᚹᚩᛞᛖᚾᚻᛖᛚᛗ (ᚷᛖᛋᛈᚱᛖᚳ) 03:15, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Oops! I guess I switched them around in my head as I was writing. Thanks for pointing that out! Code2000 and any typeface compatible with the MUFI 3.0 recommendation will support Ꝥꝥ. MUFI 2.0-compliant typefaces will also have them, but in the private use area instead of their modern codepoints. LokiClock (talk) 14:07, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Wiktionary[edit]

Is this more appropriately a Wiktionary article? ᛭ LokiClock (talk) 02:33, 12 March 2010 (UTC)

Wiktionary feels wrong to me. This is not really a letter, but a letter-like symbol, similar to the ampersand. However, it is too difficult to find this page (I searched for “Old English that” and only got here after many clicks, via the page for the letter þ)—Gniw (Wing) (talk) 16:28, 6 July 2010 (UTC)
Wiktionary also deals with any natural language character, not just letters and words. The ampersand has its own entry for this reason. I agree that it's not well-connected, but it can't be considered an orphan because of the links from other pages in the "letters with diacritics" box, besides a few non-trivial mentions. ᛭ LokiClock (talk) 05:23, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
