Dingbats is the name of a range of characters defined by the Unicode standard.

The Dingbats are a well-established set of symbols comprising the industry standard Zapf Dingbats font -- currently available in most laser printers. Other series of dingbats also exists, but are not encoded in the Unicode standard because they are not widely implemented in existing hardware and software as character-encoded fonts. Dingbats that are part of other standards have been encoded in the Geometric Shapes, Enclosed Alphanumerics and Miscellaneous Symbols code blocks. The order of the remaining dingbats follows the PostScript encoding.

The treatment of the Dingbats in Unicode differs from that of all other characters. These symbols are encoded as specific glyph shapes, rather than as glyphic archetypes for abstract characters that can be represented in different faces and styles. Thus, it would be incorrect to arbitrarily replace U+279D    triangle headed rightwards arrow   with any other right arrow dingbat or with any of the generic arrows from the Arrows code block. In other words, because the Zapf Dingbats font refers to glyphs from a specific typeface, their semantic value is their shape.

A number of the Dingbats represent shapes that overlap with regular Unicode symbol characters. In these cases, the shapes are not repeated in this code block. These include things like card suits, circled numbers and some arrows. In these cases, gaps are left where Zapf Dingbats are dropped.


Unicode's Dingbats code block reserves the 192 code points from U+2700 to U+27BF, of which 174 are currently assigned.
