This text includes characters that require UTF-8 (Unicode) file encoding:
ă ĕ ĭ Ĭ letters with breve or “short” mark
ŋ “eng” [ng]
ġ g with dot over
Ȼ ȼ c with slash (similar to “cents” sign ¢)
If any of these characters do not display properly—in particular, if the diacritic does not appear directly above the letter—or if the apostrophes and quotation marks in this paragraph appear as garbage, you may have an incompatible browser or unavailable fonts. First, make sure that the browser’s “character set” or “file encoding” is set to Unicode (UTF-8). You may also need to change your browser’s default font.
