U+FE0D Variation Selector-14

U+FE0D was added in Unicode version 3.2 in 2002. It belongs to the block U+FE00 to U+FE0F Variation Selectors in the U+0000 to U+FFFF Basic Multilingual Plane.

This character is a Nonspacing Mark and inherits its script property from the preceding character.

The glyph is not a composition. Its width in East Asian texts is determined by its context. It can be displayed wide or narrow. In bidirectional text it acts as Nonspacing Mark. When changing direction it is not mirrored. U+FE0D prohibits a line break before it.

This codepoint may change the appearance of the preceding character. The Unicode standard defines some standardized variants.

The Wikipedia has the following information about this codepoint:

Variation Selectors is a Unicode block containing 16 variation selectors used to specify a glyph variant for a preceding character. They are currently used to specify standardized variation sequences for mathematical symbols, emoji symbols, 'Phags-pa letters, and CJK unified ideographs corresponding to CJK compatibility ideographs. At present only standardized variation sequences with VS1, VS2, VS3, VS15 and VS16 have been defined; VS15 and VS16 are reserved to request that a character should be displayed as text or as an emoji respectively.

These combining characters are named variation selector-1 (for U+FE00) through to variation selector-16 (U+FE0F), and are abbreviated VS1 – VS16. Each applies to the immediately preceding character.

As of Unicode 13.0:

  • CJK compatibility ideograph variation sequences contain VS1–VS3 (U+FE00–U+FE02)
  • CJK Unified Ideographs Extension A and B variation sequences contain VS1 (U+FE00) and VS2 (U+FE01)
  • Emoji variation sequences contain VS16 (U+FE0F) for emoji-style (with color) or VS15 (U+FE0E) for text style (monochrome)
  • Basic Latin, Halfwidth and Fullwidth Forms, Manichaean, Myanmar, Myanmar Extended-A, Phags-pa, and mathematical variation sequences contain only VS1 (U+FE00)
  • VS4–VS14 (U+FE03–U+FE0D) are not used for any variation sequences

This list is continued in the Variation Selectors Supplement.
