NAME
       jgmenuunicode - An overview of jgmenu unicode usage

INTRODUCTION
       Unicode characters can be displayed by jgmenu.  They can	be used	in:

       o CSV data
       o Widgets
       o Config	file

       Throughout  this	 document,  unicode code points	will be	referred to by
       writing u+ folled by their hexadecimal  number.	 In  examples,	u+1234
       will be used.

UNICODE	CHARACTERS IN TERMINAL
       Terminals  handle  unicode  differently.	 For full support, avoid xterm
       and urxvt, and opt  for	something  libvte  based  such	as  sakura  or
       gnome-terminal.	 In a terminal,	you can	produce	a unicode character by
       issuing

	      printf '%b' '\u1234'

       In libvte terminals, you	can press ctrl+shift+u and then	enter the  hex
       sequence.

UNICODE	CHARACTERS IN VIM
       Whilst in insert	mode, press ctrl+V and then type u1234.

       Use  the	 command  ga  to show the hex value of the character under the
       cursor.

VARIATION SELECTORS
       Some unicode characters can be rendered as either emoji or text.	  Spe-
       cial  invisible	unicode	 characters  called variation selectors	can be
       used to force either presentation.  Append with the  text  presentation
       selector	 (u+fe0e)  or  emoji  presentation selector (u+fe0f), to force
       text or emoji respectively.  For	example:

       u+1f50d u+fe0f dh
       u+1f50d u+fe0e dhi,
