== 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. If your browser supports it, you may enable Junicode in your [[Wikipedia:Stylistic and font options|UniversalLanguageSetting preferences]]. If that is not sufficient for some reason, feel free to give feedback by following the links at the bottom of that page or following the advice here.
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.
