I want to print a lowercase u with a small e on top (u\868). I can insert the character into the code and see it in the browser (even here!), but the result is just a plain u. The MVW:


some text with an u with e char: uͤ which does not print


I have experimented with different fonts, but not found a solution. How can i achieve printing the unicode I can see? enter image description here

  • Thanks a lot! Works perfect! how can one find out which fonts have some character and which character are in a font? – user855443 Jun 13 at 10:34
  • @user855443 That mostly depends on your operating system and the available utilities. I'm on macOS and UnicodeChecker is great for this. – egreg Jun 13 at 10:43

    @user855443 fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/0364/fontsupport.htm is useful for finding fonts. – Thérèse Jun 13 at 11:38
  • Real useful - it is hard to find all the links to connect from a font to its usage in a latex file! – user855443 Jun 13 at 15:49
