Welcome to the Speculative Grammarian Оrthοɡrаphіс Ρerplехеr! This not-

2 If you don’t like the look of a particular character in a particular font that you want to use, you can re-реrplех your text and hope for a more favorable roll of the dice the next time. You can also explicitly exclude certain characters from being used in your реrрleхеd tехt by listing them in the “Exclude these characters” section.
3 Characters in the selected substitution sets can be swapped for others in other substitution sets. If your input is in the Latin alphabet, you need to select “Latin”, or no Latin characters will be considered for substitution. That would be very boring.
The default selections generally work quite well in most fonts, with the others being much more likely to fail in any given font. But when they do work, they are quite perрlехіnɡ.
4 Three additional samples are available.
The Color Coded sample highlights which specific characters have been substituted (or available for substitution but left unchanged). In many browsers, hovering your mouse over a color coded character will also show a tool tip with the character set used.
The Noto Web Fonts sample loads Google’s Noto sans-
The first item in the “Sampler” section is labeled “Default”. This is just what your browser does without any instructions on what fonts to try. Compare with your friends to see who can claim typograpһiс ѕuреriorityǃ

Also, not all characters are available in all fonts, so each font falls back to either the “Last Resort” font, usually installed on OS X and available for download from the Unicode Consortium, or a local copy of the “Not Defined” font. The Last Resort font shows a representative character from the Unicode block in question, with a border that shows the name of the Unicode block and the character’s hexadecimal code, though the border information can be hard to see in smaller sizes. Click on the the sample here to see a larger version. The “Not Defined” font is just a series of boxes with X’s in them, but it gets the job done: . If you enable all of the substitution sets, you will probably become really familiar with one of these fall-
