 +====== Extended Glyphs used in Chant Text ======
 +
 +Every glyph (character) has a corresponding //​codepoint//​ in the unicode table of all the possible glyphs in a font.  This table will both provide you with the character that you can copy and paste, as well as the unicode codepoint.  ​
 +
 +If the glyph has a corresponding ascii code, then (in Windows, anyway :-P ) you can insert the key using your extended numberpad on your keyboard by holding the //alt// key whilst you enter the ascii codepoint.  ​
 +
 +You will notice that there are not ascii codepoint for all the glyphs :-( - that is because those glyphs don't exist in the ascii table.
 +
 +Another thing to remember is that there are __three__ puzzle pieces needed for you to use unicode characters that don't have corresponding ascii codepoints: first, your text file needs to be encoded as unicode. ​ Second, your text editor needs to be able to render unicode characters. ​ Third, your font needs to have the very characters! ​ Every text editor can render ascii, but not every text editor can render unicode. ​ So if you find that you can't seem to get unicode characters into your code, it is a problem with one of these two puzzle pieces. ​ In the following table, the unicode points are correct for **most** fonts - it is possible that a font authour has placed their glyphs in the wrong codepoints, which means that some fonts can differ from others.
