OK, newbie basic question.

I've installed Junicode TTF on Mac OSX 10.6. I now have it available as a system font. Brilliant. But how do I:

  • see the characters that are available to in the font
  • actually enter them?

It's a medieval font with a bunch of characters that have no equivalent on modern keyboards. First, I don't know how to view the characters to pick the ones I need, and second, I don't know how to enter them in my Word documents! (Unicode? But how do I work out the Unicode -> symbol mapping?)

There is no handy reference guide from Junicode itself. If I open the TTF with the default Mac application, it doesn't do anything useful.

Maybe try the Character Palette? If it works like Character Map on windows, it will list all available characters in the font, and let you copy & paste them into a text file if you want.
