Special symbol - "k" with dot below

Discussion in 'HTML' started by Norman Swartz, Apr 10, 2004.

  1. Is there some way, short of using a glyph, to have a dot appear below the
    letter "k"?

    span{position:relative;margin-left:-0.5em;bottom:-4px;}

    <p>K<span>.</span></p>

    opera/moz. not supported by IE. seems to cope reasonably well with
    varying font sizes. its not something i would recommend doing.

    What would be the purpose of the dot?

    For general information on finding ways to present special characters,
    see e.g. http://www.cs.tut.fi/~jkorpela/html/unicode.html

    Specifically, small letter k with dot below is ḳ and capital k with
    dot below is Ḳ.

    But commonly available fonts usually lack a glyph for this characters.
    Arial Unicode MS is the most important exception, but not all people have
    it - it is shipped with some commercial software like Windows, and it's
    seldom a choice for a browser's default font.
