The Unicode Standard v. 5.1 has 26 precomposed characters with circumflex, viz. over ‘A’, ‘a’, ‘C’, ‘c’, ‘E’, ‘e’, ‘G’, ‘g’, ‘H’, ‘h’, ‘I’, ‘i’, ‘J’, ‘j’, ‘O’, ‘o’, ‘S’, ‘s’, ‘U’, ‘u’, ‘W’, ‘w’, ‘Y’, ‘y’, ‘Z’ and ‘z’. This subrange contains additional characters with circumflex. The Unicode Standard advises encoding characters of this type as a sequence of the baseline character and the COMBINING CIRCUMFLEX ACCENT (0302), and this way of encoding has been given as an alter- native for each character below. The character pairs ‹ea› and ‹eu› are used with circumflex spanning both characters in Post-Medieval Faroese sources, but, because some of these texts (like many Icelandic ones) are discussed or cited in the context of Medieval sources they have been included here.
