Often one finds the need to check the set of glyphs built into a standard eight bit font. While it is easy to locate a suitable font viewer and see the glyphs, the font viewer may not show the glyph associated with any ASCII code but go by the established name of the glyph in the encoding standard. We have provided a word document which will let you see the glyphs of all the fonts as would be rendered by the system when eight bit codes are used to identify the glyphs, as in html documents. These glyphs will also be shown correctly under Unicode (UTF8). The document which can be downloaded from this site is known as asciitab_480.doc which is basically a table displaying the glyphs in their ASCII positions.
1. The document linked below is useful for viewing glyphs on a Windows system.
2. You can get an idea of the glyphs included in the Indian language font and check if many samyuktakshars may be generated by placing the glyphs one after another.
3. You will also get an idea
of the special symbols in the font.
HTML Version of the document
In the HTML version of the document, the same table is provided in a form that does not explicitly state the encoding used in the document. So the browser will display the text in the native encoding and this way you will be able to check if the glyphs are getting rendered properly.
The HTML document is required to specify the font face to be used in rendering the glyphs and so you will have to edit the text by replacing the string "iitmsans" by the name of the font you wish to see. Please use a text editor and do a global replacement. Press the shift key as you click the download link to save the document.
