viewing APL symbols[edit]

What type of encoding are the symbols APL uses in? It'd be nice to see the actual symbols instead of boxes. --Mwn3d 17:18, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

MediaWiki and HTTP take care of the encoding; it's a matter of your having the fonts for the symbols (which are U+2336 to U+237A, plus some other characters shared with other purposes), and a browser/OS which will switch fonts as needed. --Kevin Reid 18:20, 7 October 2008 (UTC)
Try installing an Unicode font which includes APL characters. --DanBron 19:15, 7 October 2008 (UTC)
Before talk of replacing with inline images comes up, I'd like to leave it with the Unicode characters, as that's most helpful for copy/paste into the appropriate editors. Though a link to a page with instructions on how to see the missing symbols would be nice. --Short Circuit 07:07, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
