To my surprise, these characters display fine in most of my Linux applications (Vim, Meld) using very common fonts.

These mappings in openMSX are (so far) only for typable characters. Hence, only rows 1-5.
The source is a script that touches (on a certain machine) all keyboard matrix points of these rows and checks which character is produced. This is very reliable, I think. I updated all of them in the last couple of weeks.

I'm sure there are some exceptions, but I'd like to hear about them Smile

sdsnatcher73, can you verify and complete the purple characters of the Japanese JIS matrix? I again changed the arrangement of the characters to take less space and clarify the content.

Okay, I will add all SHIFT+GRAPH characters for JIS, I also started on International layout in this new format. It is nice. If you update the formatting on the otger tables I will work on UK (Toshiba HX-10) and Russian (Yamaha YIS503II) as well and add/confirm CODE, SHIFT+CODE, GRAPH and SHIFT+GRAPH for these. And I can complete 50on as well with GRAPH and SHIFT+GRAPH.

Come to think of it SHIFT+GRAPH on JIS and probably 50on gives no difference and one oddity where 2 characters are typed. I will inform you in this thread first to see if we think it adds information or rather not. Maybe a note in the top section is a better idea.

As you can see in the corresponding unicodemap files, that is correct.

I think we are forced to use images for graphi characters because there are some that do not display on some PCs, Macs or browsers.

Let’s identify which ones. My iPhone replaces the card figures (heart, spade etc.) with emoji characters as well as the original smiley face. But most others are displayed just fine.

The purple characters in JIS are wrong, these are generated with SHIFT+CODE instead of SHIFT+GRAPH. This should be a new color imo.

Here's a test for international, only the 'new' characters:

1fb6c, 54, GRAPH       # ???? (LEFT TRIANGULAR ONE QUARTER BLOCK)
1fb6d, 32, GRAPH       # ???? (UPPER TRIANGULAR ONE QUARTER BLOCK)
1fb6e, 54, SHIFT GRAPH # ???? (RIGHT TRIANGULAR ONE QUARTER BLOCK)
1fb6f, 32, SHIFT GRAPH # ???? (LOWER TRIANGULAR ONE QUARTER BLOCK)
1fb82, 44, SHIFT GRAPH # ???? (UPPER ONE QUARTER BLOCK)
1fb85, 52, SHIFT GRAPH # ???? (UPPER THREE QUARTERS BLOCK)
1fb87, 41, SHIFT GRAPH # ???? (RIGHT ONE QUARTER BLOCK)
1fb8a, 37, SHIFT GRAPH # ???? (RIGHT THREE QUARTERS BLOCK)
1fb96, 45, SHIFT GRAPH # ???? (INVERSE CHECKER BOARD FILL)
1fb98, 46, GRAPH       # ???? (UPPER LEFT TO LOWER RIGHT FILL)
1fb99, 46, SHIFT GRAPH # ???? (UPPER RIGHT TO LOWER LEFT FILL)
1fb9a, 50, SHIFT GRAPH # ???? (UPPER AND LOWER TRIANGULAR HALF BLOCK)
1fb9b, 50, GRAPH       # ???? (LEFT AND RIGHT TRIANGULAR HALF BLOCK)
1fbaf, 12, SHIFT GRAPH # ???? (BOX DRAWINGS LIGHT HORIZONTAL WITH VERTICAL STROKE)

Nice, the forum changes it into question marks.... so never mind.

Yeah the software only supports 16-bit Unicode for some reason. You can put it on pastebin Smile.
