Character Sets

The University Desktop supports a range of character sets. If you want to find a particular character, or character set, you can use a utility program called Character Map. Character Map will show all the characters in each font and will allow you to search for a particular character set within a font.

Character Map can be opened from the Start Menu by selecting:
