Browse by code chart: PUA-7

This range includes superscript characters, typically placed above another base-line character. They are found in many early German printed texts, and in a large number of Medieval manuscripts. The position immediately above a base-line character distinguishes them from raised interlinear characters typically occupying a position immediately after another base-line character. This latter type includes a handful of phonetic modifiers such as a raised ‘w’ indicating rounding, a raised ‘h’ indicating aspiration etc. The majority of characters in the list below have been documented in Andrea de Leeuw van Weenen, A Gram- mar of Möðruvallabók (CNWS 85), Leiden 2000. In v. 4.0 of the Unicode Standard, 13 superscript characters were added in the range Combining diacritical marks, sc. ‘a’, ‘e’, ‘i’, ‘o’, ‘u’, ‘c’, ‘d’, ‘h’, ‘m’, ‘r’, ‘t’, ‘v’ and ‘x’, 0363–036F (pp. 45–46 above). In v. 5.1 of the Unicode Standard, 19 additional superscript characters were inluded in Combining Diacritical Marks Supplement, 1DD4–1DE6. They have been decommissioned in the present subrange (highlighted in yellow).
