Unicode is a text-processing standard that assigns a unique number to each character across most human languages and writing systems. It is device- and platform-agnostic and is maintained by the Unicode Consortium. The adoption of the Unicode standard has grown so much that it is now implemented in many modern operating systems, programming languages, as well as XML.
Common Character Sets
Below are some tables of common Unicode character sets.
Note: These tables only showcase a few characters from each set. More information can be found in the official Unicode character code charts.
|U+274C||❌||Cross mark (red)|
|U+274E||❎||Negative squared cross mark (green)|
