Unicode Character Charts By Script

Published by at 8:09 am under Flash,Tips

If you often embed fonts for use in Flash/Flex and needs to specify “unicodeRange” in the [Embed] meta tag, the following site gives you the unicode tables for the various character glyphs:

http://unicode.org/charts/

For example, if you need to embed Thai characters, you can look up “Thai” under “South East Asian” on that website – it will give you a PDF document, have a peek inside and you will see that Thai characters are in the range “U+0E00-U+0E7F”:

[Embed(mimeType="application/x-font", systemFont="DejaVu Sans", fontName="DejaVu Sans",
unicodeRange="U+0E00-U+0E7F")]
public static const REGULAR:Class;

Note
The font you are embedding must of course contain the respective glyphs in the specified unicode range(s).
