jheem’s Greek, Russian and Chinese look OK to me, as does Faldy’s Korean (I’m guessing) but the Sanskrit and Tamil are just question marks.  Firefox 1.5.0.9 for Mac.

The Hebrew is OK.  It looks like Sanskrit and Tamil aren’t supported in the Unicode implementation on my computer.

I see the Sanskrit and Tamil, but not the Chinese. YMMV appears to be the operative concept. (Your mileage may vary)

ڬڱڼڠپٺ (Arabic; and incidentally, the Windows character map inserts Arabic & Hebrew characters from right to left)

Firefox 1.5.0.4 Ubuntu LInux 5.10

Everything looks good to me except Dave’s Arabic.

Let’s see what it does with my Arabic:

داود

such as it is (or, in this case, isn’t).

Everything looks fine to me. I’m at work, so it’s IE something, some version of Windows. I could look it up if anyone really cares.

Everything looks good to me (Firefox on Windows).  Let’s try Georgian:

The Georgian is all question marks in Firefox for Mac.

My superscripts above were done with Unicode rather than the (unavailable) “sup” HTML command.  Unforunately, digits 1-3 are implemented differently than the others, so the 8 doesn’t line up with the 2 and 3 in the uranium-238 symbol.

The Georgian is all squares with what I assume is the unicode hex in Firefox 1.5.0.4 in Ubuntu 5.10.

Do you also see only squares in the Georgian Wikipedia article from which I copied the Georgian phrase (which, by the way, reads kartuli ena ‘Georgian language’)?

In the body of the article it is only question marks, but in the title bar of the web client it’s all boxes.
