Unicode Characters

JMP supports both Unicode UTF-8 and UTF-16 standards for encoding and representing text for most of the world languages. See the The Unicode Consortium for code charts and more information on the Unicode standard.

To display Unicode characters in JMP, precede the Unicode code for the character with ’\!’. For example:

Greek letter sigma (σ) in Unicode = U+03C3; in JMP, use \!U03C3

Greek letter mu (μ) in Unicode = U+03BC; in JMP, use \!U03BC

To use Unicode to express superscripts and subscripts:

subscript 1 (1) in Unicode = U+2081; in JMP, use \!U2081

superscript 2 (2) in Unicode = U+00B2; in JMP, use \!U00B2

To express x2 in Unicode, in JMP, use \!U0078\!U00B2.
