1 Entity names are a mixture of standard HTML entity names, names used in XML documents specific to this project, and suggested names for those entities we have not yet had the need to use. As a group, they do not at this stage represent a standard of any sort. Since these are not defined as standard in XML or XHTML 1.1, they do not work consistently in all browsers.
2 Unicode decimal codes are used to create numeric entities in HTML or XML. These all take the form of &#dddd;, where "d" represents a digit. Thus, the entity for "small a macron" would be "ā", and the entity for "Capital D underdot" would be "Ḍ".


Displaying Diacritics in Your Web Browser

To insure that the diacritic characters throughout the THL site appear properly in your web-browser, your system and browser need to be configured properly. THL uses Unicode encoding to display diacritics and your system and browser must be set up appropriately to handle the Unicode characters. To insure the proper display of diacritic characters within THL, one needs:

  1. To have a Unicode diacritic font with all the necessary diacritic characters installed on your computer, and
  2. To have one’s browser properly configured.

THL recommends the use of Times Extended Roman, freely available from BCCA. Information on how to set up your browser for a PC can be found at Displaying Unicode Diacritics in Browsers on Windows. Further information on the use of diacritic fonts may be found at the THL Unicode Diacritics Fonts page.
