(for me at least), it is not the hex code, but rather the decimal code
must be used to import the glyph ; thus entering «2204» (without the
quotation marks) in the tool gives me the desired ∄, whereas entering
«089c»gives me a glyph I cannot read with the fonts I have installed
Nope - that's double conversion you're doing here.. 2204 is already
hex value. that in decimal would be 8708
While probably not so useful for this case, you can also modify
windows keyboard layouts to have access to more key-combinations.
I'm not quite sure I follow you here, Christian ; 089c is the hexadecimal
representation of the number represented by the decimal 2204 ((12x16⁰ +
(9x16¹) + (8x16²)), so I don't understand where the «double conversion»
comes in. As I understand it, 2204 is the decimal and 089c the hexadecimal
code for the glyph «∄», and the first page of Table de caractères Unicode
http://unicode.coeurlumiere.com/) would seem to back me up.
Your example describes it differently:
On page 3  it shows the glyph in the line 2200 at fifth position out of
Therefore it is Unicode 2204, as the columns stand for the last position in
the four digit code.
But the line above is 21F0 - and the last 6 columns in each line stand for
the fourth position of the code as A to F.
These numbers can't be decimal - they are hexadecimal. Nobody would try to
convert let's say 220A (just 5 characters behind 2204), the small epsilon
sign, to Hex again.
By the way, the small number above the sign is the decimal number.
I don't know if this helps at all, I just wanted to tell...
Bernhard, you must have missed my most recent reply to Christian above. My
error was *not* in attempting to «reconvert» a hexadecimal representation to
yet another hexadecimal, but rather in simply mistaking a decimal
representation (2204, which represents the same number as the hexdecimal
089c), found as I explicitly noted, on p 1 of the Unicode table, as being
that of the Unicode glyph (∄) in question, whereas it codes for an entirely
different glyph. Very kind, in any event, of both you and Christian to
attempt to explain the misteries of hexadecimal representation....
