Format Other Unicode Category
In the Unicode context, format other characters are employed to delineate aspects of text layout and presentation. These characters may not be visually represented in the final rendering of text but instead influence the formatting and display properties of adjacent characters. Examples of format other characters include the Zero Width Space (ZWSP) and the Zero Width Joiner (ZWJ), which play roles in controlling text shaping and rendering, particularly in contexts where ligatures, diacritics, and special character combinations are involved. By defining formatting attributes, the Unicode Format Other category contributes to maintaining the visual integrity and proper rendering of text across different platforms, languages, and typographical styles.
Below you will find all the characters that are in the 'Format Other' unicode category. Currently there are 170 characters in this category.
