Font[siu-kái | kái goân-sú-bé]

Many of the symbols needed by Pe̍h-oē-jī are quite common. There are several that are somewhat rare: n3, N3, m7 (?).

Most modern browsers have a way to used mixed fonts. If the font set by the web page does not contain a symbol, the browser has a way to find the appropriate symbol within another font. Unfortunately, IE does not have this feature.

The following is a list of fonts that are appropriate for the Min Nan Wikipedia.

Windows[siu-kái | kái goân-sú-bé]

  • Doulos SIL
  • Gentium
  • Code2000
  • Arial Unicode MS (lacks n3)
  • Lucida Sans Unicode (lacks n3)
