INTRO | ARAMAIC | HEBREW | GREEK

Instead of worrying if the viewers of a document have the proper fonts

Example:

"You need the Assyria's Letters (V1.3), SILGreek, and HaTorah, fonts in order to view this site properly!"

And if they don't have them ways to download all of them

Example:

Jabobite Narrow FTP servers:
USA
CANADA
EUROPE
AUSTRALIA
GENERIC MIRROR

Plus having to worry if a document becomes unreadable if the proper fonts aren't found,

Example:

"Fmxr" in:

Estrangelo (V1.1) is ""
(the word "rkhemtha", "friend" (fem.) ),

CALSyriac is ""
("rkhém-'F'," the verb "love" followed by a Roman "F") , and in

Dawod is ""
("nsmk" no sense at all + wrong forms)!

 

Makes me want to shy away from different fonts that overmap Roman characters, so on this site, I use Unicode. Instead of having an Alap appear as the letter A in a font, Unicode allows an Alap to actually be an Alap. No matter which font you change to, it'll always be an Alap. Each character (or "glyph") from many, many, many, different languages has a unique unicode ID number that can be referenced in many types of computer documents (most importantly of note: HTML). Since I'm using this for my site, I figured I'd share it with other ancient language enthusiasts, such as yourself, I presume, so that you can use these in your own documents.

In Unicode, one font takes care of all problems. If you download ONE unicode-syriac font, you don't need to worry about switching to it, the computer will do so automatically. If you have more than one unicode font on your system, the computer will pick which one to display on it's own, unless told otherwise by the document.

I recommend, for my pages, to download one Unicode font, entitled "Code 2000." It supports all of the character sets I use on this site (Syriac, Hebrew, and Greek/Coptic) as well as dozens of others (Chinese, Japanese, Tagalog, etc..etc.) so it's worth the download on it's own.

Once you have it downloaded and installed, all pages should display properly, as should all other websites that employ unicode. No more hastle. :-)

Now, on to the codes!


Syriac/Aramaic:

This is the entire Syriac/Aramaic Unicode sheet. There are two options for inserting these characters into HTML: Decimal and Hexidecimal. Both will get you the same result, but Decimal is more widely supported. The format for the table is as follows:

ܐ

Alap
ܐ
ܐ

All you need to do is cut and paste the decimal (top number) or hexidecimal (bottom number) for HTML documents, or the character itself for Unicode-compliant word processors.
