Bookshelf Symbol 7

Bookshelf Symbol 7 is a typeface which was packaged with Microsoft Office 2003. It is a pi font encoding several less common variants of Roman letters, including a small subset of those used in the International Phonetic Alphabet, a few musical symbols and mathematical symbols, a few additional symbols (including torii) and a few rare or obscure kanji.

Sample

In 2004, Microsoft released a critical update (Knowledge Base Article 833407) to remove two swastikas (one diagonal, one straight) and a Star of David from this typeface, shown in the chart below as 0x7E (not displayed for lack of Unicode character), 0x86, and 0x74 respectively, presumably after complaints from users who took the swastikas as support for Nazism.[1]

  1. Fleuron or ampersand of some sort.
  2. Double barred dollar sign.
  3. Removed by KB833407.
  4. Turned asterism, i.e. ⁂ upside down.
  5. Diagonal right-pointing swastika, similar to the form used by Nazi Germany, which Unicode does not include nor intend to.[2] Removed by KB833407.
  6. Resembles 〽 but with only one peak.
  7. Unicode U+0FD5 (as a religious symbol) or U+5350 (as a kanji).[2] Possibly intended as a symbol for a Buddhist temple[3] (especially given that it follows the ⛩ (torii) for a Shinto shrine), but the usual map symbol is the left-pointing 卍 (U+0FD6 or U+534D).[3] Removed by KB833407.
  8. IDS ⿳艹犬廾
  9. IDS ⿰虫⿱廿内 (i.e. resembles 蜗 but with 廿 and not 口). It may be U+8739 .
