This page shows characters that are required to represent texts written in different languages using different writing systems. It mostly concentrates on the characters that are not a part of the standard 7-bit ASCII character set. Information is presented in the form of languages-to-characters cross-reference tables. A table contains languages using the same script arranged alphabetically by their ISO 639 code. This page is using the Unicode (UTF-8) Character Set, the only way for now to see as text within a single web page all (well, almost all) of the variety of characters used by the languages of the world.

The page obviously is incomplete and is currently being constructed.
