# How can I use new unicode characters?

I know, there are lots of questions about Unicode and I've read a lot of these. But I wasn't able to solve my problem:

I have to use the characters ↊ and ↋ (U+218A and U+218B) in my text. I tried with LaTeX and XeLaTeX and several packages. But it always sais

! Package inputenc Error: Unicode char ↊ (U+218A)(inputenc) not set up for use with LaTeX.See the inputenc package documentation for explanation.Type H for immediate help....

What can I try? How can I set it up for use? I'm using Texmaker on windows 10 with MikTeX. Thanks!

• Do you have a font that contains these characters? Without a font to display it you get an error message. Jun 12 '17 at 16:12

\DeclareRobustCommand{\turnedthree}{\make@turned{3}}

Not sure whether this renders correctly, so I provide also an image of the code.
