Moin Moin ich habe für mich eine Seite angelegt mit den allgemeinen Interpunktion (General Punctuation).   Auf etlichen Internetseiten habe ich Informationen mir geholt und gelesen. Ich hab verstanden das nicht jede Schrift alle Schriftzeichen  "besitzt" aber so wie  ich es verstehe, müssten doch alle Schriftzeichen die gleichen Glyphe (Zahl) besitzen das ist aber nicht der Fall. Ich spreche hier von meiner Windows 10 Version nicht von dem Mac  (obwohl müsste doch auch gleich sein). Vielleicht klärt mich mal jemand auf. Im Beispiel sieht man das der Unicode gleich ist aber bei der Glyphe eine andere Zahl steht. Danke sehr

Moin Moin I have created a page for me with the general punctuation (General Punctuation). On several websites I have got information and read me. I understood that not every font "owns" all the characters, but as I understand it, all characters must have the same Glyphe (Number), but that is not the case. I'm not talking about my Windows 10 version of the Mac (although it should be the same). Maybe someone will tell me sometime. In the example you can see that the Unicode is the same but the Glyph is another number.

Each font defines its own glyph numbers, so the glyph numbers don't need to be the same. The Unicode code point will always be the same, but the glyph number is an index into the font's internal tables and since different fonts define different characters their tables will be laid out differently and the numbers will differ.

If you think about it, if the glyph numbers did have to be the same we wouldn't use Unicode. We could just use the glyph numbers.

I am not sure if Unicode has actually solved any of the problems it was designed to solve. [sly-winkey-face emoticon]
