== Special characters ==
There are a few special characters you will see on this Wikipedia, '''ȝ''', '''ƿ''', '''þ''', '''ð''', '''æ''', '''ċ''', the macron accent mark ( '''¯''' ), as well as the Anglo-Saxon runes. In order to see the Runic characters, you will need any font which has Unicode compliance within the "Runic" range.
The macron is used to represent a long vowel to help distinguish between words which would otherwise appear indistinguishable ('''īs''' vs '''is'''). The acute accent is often used in the same manner, but for consistency the macron should be used.
