Characters/Fonts 6.1 Introduction Notation and symbols have proved very important for mathematics. Mathematics has grown in part because its notation continually changes toward being succinct and suggestive. There have been many new signs developed for use in mathematical notation, and mathematicians have not held back from making use of many symbols originally introduced elsewhere. John O'Conner's Blog: Charset Pitfalls in JSP/Servlet Containers Posted by joconner on July 27, 2005 at 1:13 PM PDT The J2SE platform has come a long way in internationalization. Some things are just easy...like entering your name in a Swing text field regardless of whether your name is John, JosÃ©, or ç”°ä¸ (Tanaka). Unicode prevails within the Java core. Unfortunately, entering non-ASCII text in the J2EE world isn't nearly as easy.
Special Characters — Alt Keyboard Sequences To type a special character, using an Alt keyboard sequence: Ensure that the Num Lock key has been pressed, to activate the numeric key section of the keyboard. Press the Alt key, and hold it down. Miscellaneous Symbols Miscellaneous Symbols is a Unicode block (U+2600–U+26FF) containing glyphs representing concepts from a variety of categories, astrological, astronomical, chess, dice, musical notation, political symbols, recycling, religious symbols, trigrams, warning signs, and weather, among others.

End-to-end internationalization of Web applications - Java World A typical Web application workflow involves a user loading one of your Webpages into her browser, filling out HTML form parameters, and submitting data back to the server. The server makes decisions based on this data, sends the data to other components such as databases and Web services, and renders a response back to the browser. At each step along the way, a globally aware application must pay attention to the user's locale and the text's character encoding. 50 Lessons I wish I had learned earlier Welcome to our blog!

Wingdings 2 Equivalents Wingdings 2 font should not be used in Web pages. This page is not a demonstration of how to use Wingdings 2 font; it provides a warning of the problems that it causes, and shows how to use Unicode instead. Microsoft do not supply Wingdings 2 with Windows; it has been included with versions of Office starting with Office 97 and with some versions of Works. It was originally a TrueType font, but recent versions are OpenType. For Windows, browsers such as Internet Explorer and Netscape 4 that are not standards-compliant allow non-Unicode fonts such as Wingdings 2 to be specified in HTML or CSS, to enable additional special characters to be displayed.
40 Belief-Shaking Remarks From a Ruthless Nonconformist If there’s one thing Friedrich Nietzsche did well, it’s obliterate feel-good beliefs people have about themselves. He has been criticized for being a misanthrope, a subvert, a cynic and a pessimist, but I think these assessments are off the mark. I believe he only wanted human beings to be more honest with themselves. Facebook Cool Letters & Symbols Things have been changing. Right now to make your name out of symbols you have to have to only use a single language. For example you can write your name in Greek, Russian, Spanish, Polish, Czech. I wrote my in Spanish, in an actually correct way: Ihor Méñshykov, even more correct than English. Internationalization Guide for Java Web Applications One World, One Character Set I've spent enough time solving internationalization problems that can be very time consuming bugs to track down. If I could help you out, great, but even better if you got something more to share. Projects come and go and every project has their own problems. Please send me more information on the subject!
INTJ Profile Introverted iNtuitive Thinking Judgingby Marina Margaret Heiss Profile: INTJ Revision: 3.1 Date of Revision: 17 Oct 2009 To outsiders, INTJs may appear to project an aura of "definiteness", of self-confidence. This self-confidence, sometimes mistaken for simple arrogance by the less decisive, is actually of a very specific rather than a general nature; its source lies in the specialized knowledge systems that most INTJs start building at an early age. When it comes to their own areas of expertise -- and INTJs can have several -- they will be able to tell you almost immediately whether or not they can help you, and if so, how.
A tutorial on character code issues This document tries to clarify the concepts of character repertoire, character code, and character encoding especially in the Internet context. It specifically avoids the term character set, which is confusingly used to denote repertoire or code or encoding. ASCII, ISO 646, ISO 8859 (ISO Latin, especially ISO Latin 1), Windows character set, ISO 10646, UCS, and Unicode, UTF-8, UTF-7, MIME, and QP are used as examples. This document in itself does not contain solutions to practical problems with character codes (but see section Further reading). Rather, it gives background information needed for understanding what solutions there might be, what the different solutions do - and what's really the problem in the first place.
Does This NASA Video Show a Spaceship Near Planet Mercury? Here's a simple calculation you can do. It currently takes 216 days to reach mars which is 0.0000059193311 light years away. 216 days = 0.69097222 years (assuming 1 year = 365.25 days for leap years). At this speed it would take 0.69097222/0.0000059193311 * 600 = 7,003,883 or around 7 million years. This assumes we reach the same speeds while carrying enough fuel to last 7 million years, which we can't. A planet that is 600 light-years away will probably NEVER be traveled to without help from something like wormholes, but it's very likely that even if wormholes exist, we couldn't survive traveling through them.
