In Mac OSEdit
In Mac OS X 10.4.10, running Firefox 220.127.116.11, the "fist" character shows up incorrectly. It's rendered similarly to U+252B, although I'm not sure if that's the actual character being displayed.
I tried to correct the problem by directly entering the proper Unicode character (U+261F), but couldn't figure out how to do so. Could someone else fix this? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk • contribs) 23:47, 22 September 2007
- I have no idea what the index looks like. My computer can't read it, and shows a little box instead. Is there any way to show the index without resorting to typing it? Savie Kumara 07:37, 4 November 2007 (UTC)
- Perhaps for this and other similar non-standard character articles, the right-hand summary/navigation pane could feature a graphic of the character, rather than the large-point character itself. Like many, I see only the no-character box.
If there are instructions somewhere in Wikipedia for adjusting your browser to display these characters correctly, a link could be prominently featured. ozNoz 23:49, 5 November 2007 (UTC)
In video gamesEdit
In place of modern arrowsEdit
The article probably should point out that in the 19th century and before, this was commonly used as a directional indicator in a variety of contexts where we would now generally use abstract arrow shapes (see the pointing sign in the image). Churchh (talk) 22:42, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
20th Century BoysEdit
The index is (or was, I can't recall) used in Shonen Jump magazine to mark the page numbers, and is used as a rather major detail in Shonen Jump's series "20th Century Boys".
What about this...?Edit
- It actually has its own article: V sign. I added a "see also" link from this article. If you happen to come across any other hand-related Unicode symbols, you might try putting them into Wikipedia's internal search engine (or a general-use search engine). That's how I found the V-sign article; we actually have a redirect there from the character. Neat! -- Beland (talk) 17:45, 28 June 2013 (UTC)
