This is a test of bringing up a web-page with strange characters, in particular the 5 extra characters of the Sakha (Yakutia) language.
This page uses the Unicode character set (16 bits, 2 bytes). In principle this enables the page to show all the character sets of all the written languages of the world on the same page.
To come up correctly your browser has to do (or be persuaded to do) two things:
I believe that such fonts include Arial Unicode MS, Tahoma, Lucida Sans Unicode, and Microsoft Sans Serif.
Of course these may or may not work on your browser. (Why are we not surprised?)
You may have to try:
On Internet Explorer this would be:
Tools > Internet Options > General > Fonts
and set Web Page Font to one of the above.
Now for the test.
The following are the Latin characters in upper and lower case:
A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z
The following are the Greek characters in upper and lower case:
Α Β Γ Δ Ε Ζ Η Θ Ι Κ Λ Μ Ν Ξ Ο Π Ρ Σ Τ Υ Φ Χ Ψ Ω
α β γ δ ε ζ η θ ι κ λ μ ν ξ ο π ρ σ τ υ φ χ ψ ω
The following are the Cyrillic characters in upper and lower case:
